Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 3; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 12-13; Spine anali 0; Raggi anali molli: 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.

Biologia     Glossario (es. 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 based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 25.1 - 29.3, mean 28.3 °C (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).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  4.4   ±0.8 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Fec assumed to be > 10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (16 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155):  Calcium = 46.1 [24.7, 84.1] mg/100g ; Iron = 0.532 [0.307, 0.979] mg/100g ; Protein = 19.5 [16.9, 22.5] % ; Omega3 = 0.148 [0.059, 0.333] g/100g ; Selenium = 27.2 [11.5, 57.1] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 218 [61, 773] μg/100g ; Zinc = 0.877 [0.529, 1.423] mg/100g (wet weight);
