Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 11; Raggi anali molli: 7 - 8. This species can be easily diagnosed from Lepidocephalus spectrum by the presence of eyes and dark pigment on the body, and absence of tubules along the lateral line; from L. pahangensis by the presence of scales on top of the head; from L. pallens by having the dorsal-fin origin well behind (vs. over) the pelvic-fin origin (predorsal length 65.0-69.3 vs. 59.9% SL); and from L. nanensis by having a shorter snout (3.9-5.1 vs. 5.6-7.4% SL; 23.3-27.1 vs. 28.6-38.1% HL). This species further differs from L. pahangensis in having 8 (vs. 9) branched dorsal-fin rays and 5-6 (vs. 4) branched anal-fin rays, and from L. pallens, L. pahangensis and L. spectrum in having a shorter head (16.6-18.8 vs. 23.2, 21.8, and 21.3-23.2% SL respectively) (Ref. 95334).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.6250   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00550 (0.00252 - 0.01200), b=3.04 (2.86 - 3.22), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (22 of 100) .
