Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 14; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 9. Head pointed, dorsal profile of forehead somewhat angular. Preorbital bone broad, maxilla extending nearly to mid-eye level. Preopercular notch and knob well developed. Scale rows on back parallel to lateral line.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 17.6 - 25.4, mean 20.8 (based on 5 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01445 (0.00705 - 0.02962), b=2.98 (2.82 - 3.14), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.5   ±0.8 se; Based on diet studies.
