Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 9;
Vertebrae: 26. This species can be distinguished from its congeners by the following characters: higher anterior (16-16.5) and posterior (15.5-16) transverse scale counts (vs. <13); without scales on predorsal midline; elongate spines of first dorsal fin absent; fifth pelvic-fin ray branched, 60-64% of fourth ray in length; basal membrane between innermost pelvic-fin rays 61-64% of length of fifth ray; without interorbital or postorbital trough; 24-26 longitudinal scales; body scales gradually increase in size posteriorly with scales on lateral midline largest; ground color of head and body semi-translucent and deep red, a dark grayish brown broken stripe on upper part of opercle when fresh (Ref. 75202).
Inhabits coral reef caves and crevices in 8-70 m (Ref. 90102).

Estimates based on models
Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969
): 25.5 - 28.9, mean 28 °C (based on 238 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00955 (0.00454 - 0.02011), b=3.05 (2.88 - 3.22), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
