Kurzbeschreibung Morphologie | Morphometrie

Rückenflossenstacheln (insgesamt): 3; Rückenflossenweichstrahlen (insgesamt): 11-12; Afterflossenstacheln 0; Afterflossenweichstrahlen: 6 - 7. Characterized by numerous prominent wart-like protuberances on its skin and a large esca that mimics a tiny fish. Bony part of the illicium with numerous crossbands and approximately twice as long as the 2nd dorsal spine. Coloration is highly variable, ranging from cream to yellow, brown, or black with scattered dark circular spots and saddles or blotches ranging from white to pink, rust-red, or red. Heavily spotted individuals resemble A. pictus. Usually has red or orange margins on all fins and the first band across the body diverts to the posterior edge of the eye which distinguishes it from A. pictus (Ref. 48635).

Biologie     Fachlexikon (Englisch) (z.B. epibenthic)

Eggs are bound in ribbon-like sheath or mass of gelatinous mucus called 'egg raft' or 'veil' (Ref. 6773). Solitary, frequently among algae, sponges and soft corals (Ref 90102).
