Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 13; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 5; Vertebrae: 24. This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: D soft rays 8; pectoral-fin rays 16-17, rays 11-12 (from uppermost ray) are noticeably longer than rest in smallest four type specimens; caudal-fin rays 25-27; vertebrae 8 precaudal + 16 caudal = 24; spines on suborbital ridge 4 (rarely 5); no secondary suborbital ridge spines; 2 prominent round to oblong pores in suborbital sensory canal immediately ventral to suborbital ridge; absence of coronal, interorbital, upper post temporal and postorbital spines; incomplete lateral line, 8-10 pored scales extending from behind supracleithral spine to mid body; cirri associated with nasal, supraocular, and parietal spines and present on posteroventral projection of lacrimal and upper left quadrant of the orbit; no cirri associated with postocular, tympanic, supracleithral, and lower posttemporal spines; relatively elongate body, its depth at origin of dorsal fin 30-32% SL, depth at caudal peduncle 9-10% SL; when alive, colour bright orange-red with several reddish-brown bars on posterior portion of trunk, the pectoral fin with vivid yellow spots interspersed with bright orange-red spots (Ref. 109716).

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=0.01230 (0.00587 - 0.02579), b=3.02 (2.85 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.5 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 (16 of 100) .
