Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10 - 11; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 8. This species is distinguished by having the following characters: pectoral fins short, usually reaching the vent, but not extending to the anal fin origin; upper and lower lips enlarged; 38-41 (mode 40) pored lateral-line scales; 12-13 (mode 12) gill rakers on the lower limb of the first branchial arch; 2nd anal spine when depressed extends to base of last anal ray or half the length of the caudal peduncle (Ref. 94655).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01514 (0.00654 - 0.03504), b=3.03 (2.84 - 3.22), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)Family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.5 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 (24 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Medium.
