Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 16.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 188)
spines: 0. Scutes along belly, 29 or 30. Three small triangular pectoral axillary scales; depressed tip of dorsal fin not reaching to vertical from anal fin origin. Hind margin of scales toothed. Dark blotch behind gill opening, followed by a series of spots along upper flank. Gill rakers fine and numerous, increasing with size of fish (100 to 280 in specimens of 4 to 16 cm standard length).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.7500 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00912 (0.00433 - 0.01920), b=3.03 (2.86 - 3.20), 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 (17 of 100) .
