Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 4; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 7; Vertebrae: 21. Adult females have a higher first dorsal fin than the adult males, and the first dorsal spine is more filamentous than that of the male (Ref. 33412). The third membrane of first dorsal fin with a large dark mark; posterior tip of preopercular spine straight and not curved upward; lower half of caudal fin rays elongate and filamentous in male (Ref. 37208).

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=0.01023 (0.00404 - 0.02593), b=2.96 (2.74 - 3.18), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)Family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assuming tmax>3).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
