Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 16; Anal soft rays: 13. This species is distinguished by the following characters: origins of dorsal and anal fins are posterior on body and lacking a membrane connecting them to caudal fin; D 16; A 13; pectoral-fin rays 23; principal caudal-fin rays 10, total caudal-fin rays 18; gill rakers 10; head large, its length 3.1 in SL; body depth 8.0 in SL; disc single, its length 6.6 in SL and disc width 6.5 in SL. Colouration: when fresh the body grayish blue, grading ventrally and posteriorly to brownish orange, and to brownish red on about posterior fourth of body; two bluish white lines extending posteriorly, angling slightly ventrally from eye, one dorsally and one ventrally from eye; the pupil encircled by a distinct red ring, with a pale blue dash below; outer two-thirds of pectoral fins translucent yellowish, basal third of fin orangish brown, grading to red ventrally on chest; the disc yellow; dorsal and anal fins reddish yellow with a narrow pale blue-green margin and a maroon submarginal band (Ref. 103877).

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=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.2 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.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
