Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 16; Anal soft rays: 15 - 17; Vertebrae: 32 - 33. This species is distinguished by the following characters: lateral profile of body with straight taper to slender caudal peduncle; distinct postorbital notch above and behind each eye but not extending across top of head as occipital groove; rostral process with a broad medial notch edged with small spines becoming progressively longer to corner on each side when viewed from above; pored lateral line scales 61-62; scales below lateral line about 15 or 16; D1 IX, D2 16; A 15-17; pectoral fins reaching to about fourth anal fin ray. Colouration: upper two-thirds of caudal fin broadly grey distally, red below; inner surface of pectoral fin mostly black with red margin basally, ventrally and along narrow outer edge (Ref. 118062).

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=0.00676 (0.00320 - 0.01430), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±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.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Climate Vulnerability (Ref. 125649):   (0 of 100) .
