Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal spines : 3; Anal soft rays : 10 - 11. Light greenish to yellowish on back, white below; scale rims pink to blackish; a black spot is at the upper base of the pectoral fin; another black spot about equal to eye diameter is at the upper base of the caudal peduncle.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits sandy areas of reef flats, lagoons, and semi-protected seaward reefs. Juveniles shallow in protected coastal waters; adults to about 30 m depth (Ref. 48636 ). Feeds on sand and rubble dwelling invertebrates (crustaceans, mollusks, forams, polychaetes, fish eggs, and small fishes). Has the habit of following sand-disturbing fishes such as goatfishes in order to intercept escaping prey. Minimum depth reported taken from Ref. 30874.

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Bi-directional sex change has been confirmed for this species (Ref. 103751 ). Distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205 ).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201 ): 24.7 - 29.3, mean 28.4 °C (based on 2136 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00623 - 0.01606), b=3.00 (2.87 - 3.13), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.5   ±0.51 se; based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (17 of 100). Nutrients (Ref. 124155 ):  Calcium = 57.9 [35.4, 92.7] mg/100g; Iron = 0.608 [0.360, 1.098] mg/100g; Protein = 18.6 [15.7, 20.7] %; Omega3 = 0.141 [0.095, 0.211] g/100g; Selenium = 25.8 [16.3, 44.2] μg/100g; VitaminA = 119 [38, 421] μg/100g; Zinc = 1.45 [1.04, 2.25] mg/100g (wet weight);
