Kurzbeschreibung Morphologie | Morphometrie

Rückenflossenstacheln (insgesamt): 17; Rückenflossenweichstrahlen (insgesamt): 8-9; Afterflossenstacheln 3; Afterflossenweichstrahlen: 6 - 7. Diagnosis: Body moderately elongated and of medium depth (Ref. 88848). Dorsal profile of body rounded; fronted profile straight; jaws isognathous; due to evisceration, body depth likely to be altered (Ref. 88848). Caudal peduncle lowering caudad, narrower point near the base of caudal fin (Ref. 88848).

Biologie     Fachlexikon (Englisch) (z.B. epibenthic)

Found common in the upper part of the rocky biotope which is usually sediment-free (Ref. 5595). Males which are territorial mainly feed from the biocover on the rocks close to their homestead while others which are more gregarious feed on plankton (Ref. 5595).
