Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Series of dark blotches along the body. The most darkened chest and belly distinguishes this species from the similar Salarias fasciatus. In addition, S. ceramensis has 15 pectoral fin rays, S. fasciatus only has 14 (Ref. 48636).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults occur solitary on dead corals (Ref. 90102) in sheltered bays and lagoons, often silty habitat, amongst mixed algae and coral rubble to about 10 m depth (Ref. 48636). Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114). Minimum depth of 1 m reported from Ref. 90102.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00741 (0.00328 - 0.01678), b=3.00 (2.81 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.0   ±0.00 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
