Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 9. Elongate second dorsal spine, 5 papillae in the anterior transverse interorbital row on each side, a total of 10 or more papillae in the posterior transverse interorbital row, a fifth transverse row of cheek papilla which extends ventral to the lower longitudinal row, which thus terminates anterior to it, and very thin (equal to a fin element in width) white bars on the head (Ref. 6189); characterized further by body with five faint white bars; white and dark bands on dorsal fins; absence of pelvic frenum; longitudinal scale series 25-26; ctenoid body scales; pectoral fin base and breast with cycloid scales; ctenoid predorsal scales 14-16; opercle with 2-3 rows of ctenoid scales; cheek without scales; well developed vertical rows of papillae on cheek; depth of body 4.9-5.0 in SL (Ref. 90102).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits rocky outcrops in areas with silt or mud bottoms in 15-20 m (Ref. 90102). Specimens taken from a muddy substrate.

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=0.00891 (0.00418 - 0.01902), b=3.07 (2.89 - 3.25), 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) .
