Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines : 3; Anal soft rays : 9. Males recognized by the yellow pectoral fins, horizontal green band from tip of snout to above pectoral fin base and large individuals with oval yellow patch on caudal peduncle. Females plain yellowish grey with pale lines along abdominal area (Ref. 48636 ). Scales large. Median predorsal scales 4; 3 scale rows on cheek, ventral row with 1-2 scales.

Terminal males with 1 or 2 upward-projecting canines posteriorly on lower dental plate and 1 on upper plate. Large initial phase individuals are tan while terminal phase individuals have a distinctive transparent yellowish-tan pectoral fin (Ref. 1602 ).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 25.8 - 28.8, mean 27.4 (based on 28 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.02188 (0.01077 - 0.04443), b=3.05 (2.86 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  2.0   ±0.00 se; Based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
