Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 7; Vertebrae: 22. This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: top of head with scales reaching forward to between anterior nostril and snout tip; lower margin of eye tangent to a line from snout tip to upper pectoral fin base; below the eye with an exposed bony ridge; second anal spine is larger and more robust than the 2 other anal spines; a white band running from behind eye to level of end of dorsal fin base (Ref. 92980).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected from sand and rubble bottom next to reef (Ref. 92980).

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=0.01995 (0.00906 - 0.04395), b=3.01 (2.83 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±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 (19 of 100) .
