Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8. This species is distinguished by the following characters: cephalic sensory-canal pore system complete (pattern 1), with the PITO pore very small; dorsal/anal fin-ray formula 9/8; some of pectoral-fin rays are branched; 5th pelvic-fin ray present; presence of a distinct dark occipital spot (intense in preservative, but visible in life); no series of small dark spots along dorsal-fin bases; 2 separate orange spots behind the eye; distinctive black marks on the underside of the head; side of head with large round red spots; scleral surface of eye with bold dark-brown-and-white markings (Ref. 115282).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species occurs in shallow fringing reef which is subject to significant terrigenous sedimentation and relatively warm water due to the limited circulation in the large bay of Teluk Saleh. Often found resting on live massive coral colonies (Ref. 115282).

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=0.00661 (0.00300 - 0.01455), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.3 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) .
