Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 16-17; Anal spines : 0; Anal soft rays : 4. Brown in color, dermal flaps blackish. Caudal absent in sub adults and adults. Females are slender and pipefish-like, but larger males are more seahorse-like (Ref. 48635 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Typically found on small and sparse seagrass or algae that grow adjacent to reefs at shallow to moderate depths. Usually found in pairs (Ref. 48635 ). Ovoviviparous (Ref. 205 ). The male carries the eggs in a brood pouch which is found under the tail (Ref. 205 ).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 24.9 - 29.3, mean 28.5 (based on 3288 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.6250   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.2   ±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 (10 of 100) .
