Etymology: Norfolkia: Named for the Norfolk Island ( In 1953 Henry W. Fowler named this new genus on a Collection of Fishes Made by Dr. Marshall Laird at Norfolk Island) (R.Bajol, pers.comm. 04/2016).;  brachylepis: Named for the scales on the pectoral fin base (Latin 'brachium' for upper arm and 'lepis' for a scale of a fish) (R. Bajol, pers.comm. 04/16).  More on author: Schultz.

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

Adults inhabit coral or rock, often under ledges, on clear lagoon and seaward reefs (Ref. 13227). Eggs are hemispherical and covered with numerous sticky threads that anchor them in the algae on the nesting sites (Ref. 240). Larvae are planktonic which occur primarily in shallow, nearshore waters (Ref. 94114).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 27.6 - 29.3, mean 28.7 °C (based on 1848 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00550 (0.00246 - 0.01227), b=3.08 (2.89 - 3.27), 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
Widerstandsfähigkeit (Ref. 120179):  hoch, Verdopplung der Population dauert weniger als 15 Monate. (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Verwundbarkeit (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Nutrients (Ref. 124155):  Calcium = 222 [120, 514] mg/100g ; Iron = 1.06 [0.66, 1.84] mg/100g ; Protein = 18.9 [17.7, 20.0] % ; Omega3 = 0.129 [0.071, 0.238] g/100g ; Selenium = 31 [15, 64] μg/100g ; VitaminA = 73.5 [23.6, 224.4] μg/100g ; Zinc = 2.06 [1.34, 3.11] mg/100g (wet weight);
