Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Distinguished by the following characteristics: D1 VI, D2 I/I 1 - 12, A 1/11, P 17 - 18, C 16 - 17 principle rays (adult specimen with 13 branched rays; branching of fin rays not completed in the juvenile specimen); all rays of the first dorsal fin are elongated in the adult specimen (tips pronounced in the juvenile), with D1 III longest. ctenoid scales; LL 37, including scales on caudal fin (squamation not completely developed in juvenile specimen), TR 8; head, nape, predorsal area, breast, ventral side of abdomen (midline) and base of P naked; area anterior of a line from the dorsal origin of the pectoral fin to the origin of the second dorsal fin naked; anterior most scales in lateral midline reach the base of the pectoral fin in the adult specimen (only near to it in the juvenile); some of these most anterior scales are cycloid (Ref. 86376)

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs inshore in the Mediterranean but found in deeper waters off Portugal (Ref. 4696).

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=0.00631 (0.00286 - 0.01390), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.2 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 (17 of 100) .
