Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8 - 9; Vertebrae: 26. This species is distinguished by the following characters: D VI-I,10, dorsal fin without elongate spines, longest spine 1.9-2.8 in HL; A I,8-9 (usually 9); pectoral-fin rays 15-16 (usually 16); lateral scales 35-37; body scales are weakly ctenoid, except cycloid anteriorly, including side of nape, abdomen, pectoral-fin base, and prepelvic area; gill rakers 2-3+11-12; gill opening extending slightly forward of level of posterior margin of preopercle; caudal fin rounded, about equal to HL, 3.2 in SL; reduced pattern of cephalic sensory-canal pores consisting of only B’, D, E, F, and H pores. Colouration: body mostly whitish with five widely spaced brown bars, and first dorsal fin mainly whitish with a prominent posterior white-edged black spot. This is apparently small size species, with mature females < 20 mm SL (Ref. 120714).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The type locality is a narrow isolated patch reef that rises to within 1 or 2 m of the surface from a depth of about 30 m and approximately 8 solitary individuals were observed at this location on a silty-sand and rubble bottom. It was invariably seen at the entrance of a burrow in company with an unidentified species of alpheid shrimp (Ref. 120714).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = No PD50 data   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00575 (0.00261 - 0.01268), b=3.09 (2.91 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
