Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 18-24; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 23 - 30; Vertebrae: 27 - 30. Two apomorphic color patterns, body bright gray with dark gray to black stripes in males (versus light gray or no stripes; stripes narrower than interspaces) and a vertically paired black blotch on caudal peduncle of juveniles and females (versus small spots irregularly arranged, or a single round dorsally positioned spot, or no spots on caudal peduncle). Scales on longitudinal series 26-28, supraorbital neuromasts 16-19, pharyngobranchial teeth 2-5. Dorsal fin origin posterior to anal fin origin in females. Caudal fin rounded (fin rays 21-22).

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=0.00355 (0.00145 - 0.00867), b=3.16 (2.94 - 3.38), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 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 (10 of 100) .
