Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 8; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-11. This species is distinguished from its congeners by the following set of characters: body scaled from the caudal peduncle to the base of pectoral fin, scales in a wedge shape to under anterior of second dorsal-fin base, then continuing anteriorly in a row of 4-5 scales, row slightly tapering anteriorly; a naked area extends from the upper pectoral-fin base to 3rd of 4th ray of second dorsal fin (rarely extending further) and from the lower pectoral-fin base to 3rd or 4th anal-fin ray (rarely extending further); upper jaw 41.5% in head length (HL); lateral scales modally 26; pectoral fin 19 (18-20) (Ref. 104557).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The species is found in brackish coastal areas with a rock and algae substrate. It was collected in large numbers, 30-80 per lot by Dawson in 1972 and 1974, from the Gatun locks of the Panama Canal and Limon Bay, the Atlantic entrance to the canal (Ref. 104557).

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):  3.1   ±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 (10 of 100) .
