Morphology | Morphometrics
(total): 7-8. Males have one or 2 pairs of large canine teeth in the lower jaw and urogenital papilla with a long, narrow tip. The females have narrow, pointed incisors at the front of the lower jaw; no developed canines; and short urogenital papilla that is less than one third the length of that in males (Ref. 43129).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5312 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00617 (0.00250 - 0.01521), b=3.15 (2.94 - 3.36), 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 to moderate vulnerability (25 of 100) .
