Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species is distinguished from its congeners by the following: anterior oculoscapular canal is only semiclosed with pores ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ? and additional pores and open furrows from interorbital part to pore ?; no posterior oculoscapular canal; the suborbital row c with 5 papillae; 26-28 scales in lateral series; 16 pectoral fin rays; second spine of the first dorsal fin longest, reaching to or behind posterior end of the second dorsal fin in males when folded down; pelvic fin anterior membrane id 1/6 or less of length of spinous ray in midline depth; head length 31.2-32.5% of SL; eye 32.8-35.7% of HL; caudal fin length 21.5-24.0% of SL (Ref. 114858).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected by beam trawl, on red algae beds in the circalittoral coarse sand bottoms from around 50 m to almost 80 m depth. There are mainly two type habitats: the Peyssonnelia beds, mainly located in the south west of Mallorca and south Menorca, and the maërl beds, mainly located in the Menorca Channel area. Visible from radiographed stomachs of specimens were uncrushed molluscs (bivalves and snails) (Ref. 114858).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00589 (0.00267 - 0.01297), b=3.10 (2.91 - 3.29), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
