Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 19; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 19; Vertebrae: 35. This species is distinguished from A. leptus by the following characters: D X (vs. IX); vertebrae 12 + 23 (vs. 13 + 19); mid-dorsal supratemporal pores 2 (vs. 1); males with a conspicuous blue ocellus between dorsal-fin spines, absent in females (Ref. 117352).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00562 (0.00261 - 0.01211), b=3.04 (2.85 - 3.23), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
