Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 4; Dorsal soft rays (total): 13; Anal soft rays: 13; Vertebrae: 25. This species is distinguished by the following characters: D IV + 13; pectoral rays 18; oblique scale rows on midside of body 37-41; body above lateral line anterior to second dorsal fin no scales; body depth of adult at anal-fin origin 3.6-4.05 in SL; the head broad and flat dorsally, the width 2.5-2.8 in SL; rugose bones dorsally on head; occipital lobes are not developed as knobs; large cleithral spine, slightly angled dorsally; 3.85-4.7 in head length; supracleithrum does not form a distinct spine posteriorly; small spines 5-7 ventrally on preopercle; blunt preorbital spines 3-5; small eyes its orbit diameter 6.45-7.1 in head length; lingual lure broadly triangular and flat at the base, with long cirri on each side, narrowing to a slender ribbon-like filament with short cirri on edges, its length is half the distance separating cleithral spines; dorsal fins are narrowly separated; margin of second dorsal fin straight; caudal fin slightly rounded. Colouration: in life it is light gray-brown, grading to white ventrally, the dorsal half of body with irregular longitudinal rows of dark brown spots of about eye size, many rosette-like, and scattered dark brown dots, especially posteriorly; head with dark dots dorsally; the first dorsal fin largely black while the second dorsal and anal fins have translucent membranes, the dorsal rays and posterior anal rays dotted with dark brown, the margin white; caudal fin dark gray with black dots on rays, the posterior margin white (Ref. 93135).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected using rotenone in cove, edge of precipitous reef with numerous caves, rock and coral ledge, over sand and patches of segrasses (Ref. 93135).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = No PD50 data   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00447 (0.00176 - 0.01132), b=3.14 (2.91 - 3.37), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  4.1   ±0.7 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (16 of 100) .
Climate Vulnerability (Ref. 125649):   (0 of 100) .
