Kurzbeschreibung Morphologie | Morphometrie

Rückenflossenstacheln (insgesamt): 10 - 11; Rückenflossenweichstrahlen (insgesamt): 14-16. Has a tall dorsal fin and small tufts below the chin (Ref. 48636). Resembles P. thepassii and P. variabilis but usually has fewer total dorsal fin elements (Ref. 37816).

Biologie     Fachlexikon (Englisch) (z.B. epibenthic)

Adults occur solitary (Ref. 90102) usually over sandy areas of reef flats and shallow lagoons. Small juveniles were found below the upside-down jelly Cassiopea that moves over sandy substrates providing safe travel (Ref. 48636). Eggs are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Females nest in empty mollusk shells (Ref. 1602). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 26.2 - 29.3, mean 28.5 (based on 1873 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5005   [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):  2.4   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Widerstandsfähigkeit (Ref. 69278):  hoch, Verdopplung der Population dauert weniger als 15 Monate. (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Verwundbarkeit (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (14 of 100) .
