Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Distinguished from its congeners by a unique combination of characters: two unpaired median pre-dorsal plates, body width 10.0-13.0% of post-dorsal fin length, inter-orbital distance between 10.6-13.0% of post-dorsal fin length, inter-orbital distance between 25.0-29.0% of eye-to-dorsal fin length; low number of jaw teeth (12-15 teeth in upper left jaw, 9-13 in lower left jaw), and pre-dorsal fin body pigmentation not formed into distinct lines between longitudinal rows of odontodes (Ref. 54475).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00550 (0.00229 - 0.01319), b=3.11 (2.90 - 3.32), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.0   ±0.1 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
