Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Vertebrae: 31 - 33. Diagnosis: snout rounded and prominent, usually with deep transverse furrow and very well-developed fleshy appendage at its anterior end (Ref. 26190, 81639). Scale formula: 38-39 (38 commonly observed); 4.5-5.5 (5.5 commonly observed); 3.0-3.5 (3.0 commonly observed); 14-16 (16 commonly observed); dorsal fin with 9-10 (10 commonly observed) branched rays (Ref. 81639). Upper edge of dorsal fin always concave (Ref. 26190, 81639). 31-33 (33 commonly observed) vertebrae; ventral fin origin located under the 4th branched dorsal ray; genital opening distal from anal fin origin; dark brown longitudinal band on flanks, not flared over scaled base of caudal fin (Ref. 81639).

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=0.00550 (0.00219 - 0.01380), b=3.03 (2.82 - 3.24), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (11 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
