Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species is distinguished by its red colour, and pink vertical bars that extend halfway up the body to the lateral trunk ridges; it has 18 trunk segments; head crest without appendage; enlarged pectoral area; dorsally enlarged spine on trunk ring 11 that is pointed forward; a pair of enlarged ventral spines on rings 8 and 17; the body deepest on ring 12, behind dorsal spine; spines on lateral trunk ridge are not continuous with lateral tail ridges (Ref. 100032).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs more offshore in slightly deeper waters; at 50+m with complex habitat of a mixed reef and sandy habitat with two paratypes collected from the continental shelf (Ref. 100032).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.4 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 (21 of 100) .
