Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-11; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 13 - 14. Dorsal fin origin situated in the middle of the space between pelvic-fin origin and anal-fin origin, its superior border straight or convex, and with 3 unbranched and 7 to 8 branched rays (Ref. 52918, Ref. 52923). Anal fin with concave inferior border, not reaching the caudal fin, and with 3 unbranched and 10 to 11 branched rays (Ref. 52918, Ref. 52923). Pelvic fin, not reaching anal-fin origin, with 2 unbranched and 6 to 7 branched rays (Ref. 52918, Ref. 52924). Pectoral fin pointed and reaching pelvic fin (Ref. 52924). Scales: 60-72 lateral-line scales, 14-16 above lateral line, 4-6 between lateral line and pelvic fin; 26 around caudal peduncle (Ref. 52918, Ref. 52923). The lateral line is complete, follows a ventral line and is median situated at the end of the caudal peduncle (Ref. 52923). It is olive-colored on the dorsal side, silvery on the flanks and ventral side, with a black lateral band (Ref. 52923). Dorsal and caudal fin grey-colored (Ref. 52924).

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=0.00813 (0.00393 - 0.01681), b=3.12 (2.95 - 3.29), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±0.3 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) .
