Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 6.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 48636)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 4; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 7. Identified by moderately long tentacle behind the eye and numerous small leafy appendages on the body (Ref. 48636).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits sand of shallow reefs, from tide pools to as deep as 30 m (Ref. 1602). Also inhabits sheltered reef lagoon habitats, usually in on algae reef near seagrass beds (Ref. 48636). Occurs solitary in weedy areas and sand-rubble bottoms (Ref. 90102).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00776 (0.00341 - 0.01765), b=2.82 (2.63 - 3.01), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±0.25 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
