Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 13; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 8. This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: D X,13; total gill rakers 16; body depth 2.4-2.8 in SL; eye 4.5-4.7 in HL; interorbital 5.5-6.5 in HL; the scale rows above the lateral line rising obliquely toward dorsal profile; predorsal scales extends slightly anterior to level of preopercular margin; weakly developed preopercular notch and interopercular knob; upper surface of tongue with central patch of fine granular teeth; vomer with narrow, crescent-shaped patch of granular teeth, no medial posterior extension; slightly emarginate caudal fin; in life it is reddish to yellow on head, bluish to grey on upper side, grading to yellow-orange below lateral line; bright yellow anal and pelvic fins, presence of a black spot at base of uppermost pectoral-fin rays (Ref. 93093).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 28.7 - 29.3, mean 28.9 (based on 272 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01445 (0.00696 - 0.03003), b=2.98 (2.82 - 3.14), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.8   ±0.6 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 to moderate vulnerability (30 of 100) .
