Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 65-67; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 42 - 43; Vertebrae: 33 - 34. This species is distinguished by the following characters: D 65-67; A 42-43; all fin rays branched, except first 14 of dorsal fin, first of anal fin, and lateral 2 of caudal fin; lateral-line scales 66-69; vertebrae 33 or 34; dorsal pterygiophores anterior to fourth neural spine 15 or 16; body depth 2.5 (2.35) in SL; head length 4.35 in SL; caudal peduncle short, 9-14 in head length; snout length 2.75 in head length; tubular anterior nostril conical, as long as diameter of upper eye; origin of dorsal fin at base of upper lip; in alcohol, colour of ocular side yellowish white with a faint longitudinal orangish band below the base of dorsal and anal fins; an indistinct dusky spot about twice eye diameter on lateral line about two head lengths posterior to head; scattered small blackish flecks, most from dark outer edges of scales; when fresh, colour of ocular side light yellowish brown, with scale edges darker brown, except within numerous dark-edged, pale spots that vary from nearly round to irregularly ovate, none larger than eye; fin membranes mainly transparent, the rays blotched and spotted with greenish yellow, especially basally; front of head translucent; lappet-like cirri anteriorly and ventrally on margin of head whiter (Ref. 95111).

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=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±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 (14 of 100) .
