Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 5; Dorsal soft rays (total): 21-22; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 17 - 18. This species is characterized by the following: D V,21-22 (rarely 21); A I,17-18 (rarely 17); 13-15 pectoral rays; 47-53 lateral-line scales; about 3 + 8 gill rakers; 3-4 predorsal scales, ending in a median naked area on nape with rest of nape scaled, the scales extending into posterior interorbital space and continuing in a single row to front of interorbital; ctenoid scales on nape and cheek; front of lower jaw with 10 canine teeth; with palatine teeth; upper edge of subopercle with a prominent sharp spine; vertical edge of preopercle serrate to irregular; body depth 4.45-5.35 in SL (18.7-22.6% SL); middle dorsal spine longest, 7.05-8.9% SL; truncate to slightly rounded caudal fin, 19.2-21.3% SL; membrane from last dorsal spine joined to base of first soft ray; whitish body with a straight to wavy black stripe from behind eye to upper base of caudal fin (stripe may be broken into blotches, especially on head); ventral half of body with a series of 10 dark bars; a broad median brown band on upper lip and two spots on side of lip; a long dark brown streak on side of lower lip; a large black spot basally in dorsal fin between spines II and V; soft portion of dorsal fin is pale with a small blackish spot at base of most rays, and 1-2 outer rows of small black spots on membranes; pale anal fin with a row of faint blackish spots at base of most rays and a middle row of small dark spots; pale caudal fin with a dusky lower margin (Ref. 57562).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00646 (0.00285 - 0.01461), b=3.09 (2.91 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (17 of 100) .
