Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10 - 11; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12-13; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 10 - 11; Vertebrae: 26. This species is distinguished from its congeners by the following set of characters: D X-XI,12-13 (modally XI,12), total rays 22-23, with the first dorsal-fin spine much shorter than second dorsal-fin spine, their bases close together; A II,10-11 (II,10), total rays 12-13 (12); lateral-line tubes 17-21(19); the width between interorbital ridges 3.0-4.2% (mean 3.7%) of SL; pelvic-fin base length 15.2-19.3% (17.4%) of SL Colouration: body entirely pinkish, with oblique alternating dark and light stripes; pectoral fin's inner surface is largely yellow, with irregular dark interconnected blotches along rays, together with small dark spots (Ref. 128010).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 20.1 - 27.2, mean 25.1 (based on 167 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804):  PD50 = 0.5002   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01096 (0.00427 - 0.02816), b=3.03 (2.81 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.8   ±0.7 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
