Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 19; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 19; Vertebrae: 32. This species is distinguished by the following: D IX, 19; gill opening extending ventrally to opposite 5th or 6th dorsalmost pectoral-fin ray; 32 total vertebrae (Ref. 89959).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The species' slender body is well-suited for using as shelter abandoned calcareous polychaete tube, especially if protective cover is scarce. The type locality is mostly sand, broken shells and rubble with occasional seagrass beds (Ref. 89959).

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=0.00550 (0.00253 - 0.01194), b=3.05 (2.85 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±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 (10 of 100) .
