Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 3; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 12; Espinas anales 0; Radios blandos anales: 7 - 8. Illicium slightly longer than 2nd dorsal spine tapering to a non-filamentous simple tentacle that lacks an esca. Lacks a groove between the upper jaw and base of the illicium. Distinctive color pattern in which there is a broad dark band and marginal dark bands on the anal and caudal fins.

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Benthic species (Ref. 58302, 75154) found in inshore coral reef (Ref. 75154). The average depth for all known captures was 11.2 m. Individuals maintained in experimental aquaria change in color from dark gray to light cream within 2 weeks. Oviparous. Eggs are bound in ribbon-like sheath or mass of gelatinous mucus called 'egg raft' or 'veil' (Ref. 6773). Solitary and sometimes among hard coral branches (Ref 90102).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 25 - 29.3, mean 28.2 (based on 2427 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5002   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01479 (0.00566 - 0.03868), b=2.99 (2.76 - 3.22), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  4.1   ±0.7 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliencia (Ref. 69278):  Alto, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo inferior a 15 meses (Fec assumed to be > 10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
