Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 25-27; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 17 - 19. Dorsal fin of males generally dusky when preserved, the large dark spot absent on anterior part of fin. Caudal vertebrae, 23-25 (usually 24). Anterior lateral line scales 32-39, usually 33-37. Posterior interorbital pores 1-2; total parietal pores 14-30, usually more than 30 (Ref. 42958).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Apparently living in corals with surfaces composed of tiny finger-like projections (Ref. 42958).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Bi-directional sex change has been proposed for this species though histological analysis of more specimens is needed for confirmation (Ref. 103751).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.6250   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.58 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
