Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 3; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 12-13; Taggstrålar i analfenan 0; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 7 - 8. Color variable; has a black phase with white pectoral ray tips. Bony part of illicium with numerous dark crossbands and nearly twice as long as the 2nd dorsal spine; esca an elongate tuft of flattened appendage.

Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Inhabit shallow sheltered reefs (Ref. 9710). Adults usually with sponges; juveniles openly on sand or reef, mimicking small sponges or nudibranchs (Ref. 48635). Benthic (Ref. 58302). Oviparous. Eggs are bound in ribbon-like sheath or mass of gelatinous mucus called 'egg raft' or 'veil' (Ref. 6773).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 25.1 - 29.3, mean 28.3 (based on 3097 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5005   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01995 (0.00906 - 0.04395), b=3.01 (2.83 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trofisk nivå (Ref. 69278):  4.4   ±0.8 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliens (Ref. 69278):  Hög, lägsta populationsfördubblingstid mindre än 15 månader (Fec assumed to be > 10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (16 of 100) .
