Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 21.2 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 48238); 14.3 cm SL (female)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 5; Dorsal soft rays (total): 21; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 17; Vertebrae: 30. Predorsal scales about 15. Small and cycloid scales on cheek; on body ctenoid. No serrae or spines on edges of opercular bones except a single stout spine on opercle. Body elongate, depth 5.7-6.2 in SL; whitish with 8 narrow dark bars, all but first and last broadly expanded dorsally to a Y-shape. Body cylindrical anteriorly, the width slightly greater than depth. Third or 4th dorsal spines longest; membrane of 5th dorsal spine connected directly across from spine tip to first soft ray. Caudal fin slightly rounded, upper corner projecting as a short, broad-based filament in adults. Mouth slightly oblique, the lower jaw projecting.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected from sand or sand and rubble substrata in both lagoon and seaward reef areas. Large and easily approached. Apparently a protogynous hermaphrodite (Ref. 48238).

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):  3.6   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (36 of 100) .
