Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 63-68; Anal soft rays: 47 - 53; Vertebrae: 36 - 38. Diagnosis: Dorsal rays 63-68; anal rays 47-53; most dorsal and anal rays branched. Lateral line scales 61-67, including 8-9 anterior to a vertical at upper end of gill opening; one to three pores beneath some scales on ocular side of body near base of dorsal and anal fins. Vertebrae 36-38; dorsal pterygiophores anterior to fourth neural spine 8-9. Body depth 2.35-2.65 in SL; head short, length (HL) 4.7-4.85 in SL. Upper lip not overlapping lower lip when mouth closed. No prominent cirri on ventral edge of head. Lateral line aligned with dorsal third of upper eye; eye diameter 4.6-6.25 in HL; upper eye overlapping anterior half to two-thirds of lower eye; interorbital space narrow, the vertical distance separating eyes about half eye diameter. Caudal peduncle absent. Longest dorsal ray 1.5-1.75 in HL; caudal fin slightly pointed, its length 3.95-4.8 in SL; pelvic fins 1.8-2.0 in HL, the tip of longest ray reaching base of third anal ray. Ocular side light brown with numerous small variable dark brown spots of variable size, some in form of a small cross; cirri on lengthwise membranous ridge of rays of dorsal and anal fins dark brown (appearing as small dark spots without magnification) (Ref. 57560).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01122 (0.00521 - 0.02417), b=3.07 (2.88 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.5 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 (19 of 100) .
