Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 7 - 10. This species is distinguished from all its congeners by the following set of characters: head plump, more or less rounded, dorsoventrally compressed; head broad, with the anterior outline of the head forming a smooth convex curve when viewed dorsally; most males with one, rarely two, dorsal-fin spines filamentous first spine reaching to between last first dorsal- fin spine base to fifth second dorsal-fin ray base, occasionally to ninth second dorsal-fin ray base; pectoral rays usually 20-21; D2 usually I,10; A usually I,9; basicaudal scales absent; body with broad dark brown bands, with smooth vertical margins (Ref. 87125).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5005   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00692 (0.00368 - 0.01301), b=3.30 (3.13 - 3.47), based on LWR estimates for species & Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±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) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Very high.
