Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 15; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 7. This species is distinguished from its congeners by the its coloration pattern: pale yellow body with a black vertical bar going from the dorsal edge of the head to the edge of the ventral preopercle; triangular black spot at the preopercle and another one that runs along the caudal peduncle; head with iridescent blue vertical lines bordering the eyespot, the contour of the eye socket and the triangular spot; anal, caudal and pelvic fins are bright yellow; pectoral fins are very faint yellow; dorsal fin is pale yellow with oblique positioned blue stripes (Ref. 90371).

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=0.01778 (0.00696 - 0.04547), b=3.03 (2.80 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.8   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (16 of 100) .
