Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Anal soft rays: 11 - 12. Head very broad (width 28-31% SL, 96-109% HL); body dark brown marbled or with narrow vermiculations, and low and anteriorly truncate first dorsal fin. Distinguished from highly similar species Cottus hispaniolensis by the following characters: pelvic fins hyaline or with faint brown marks; low and anteriorly truncate first dorsal fin; last dorsal-fin ray connected to body by a membrane along 1/3-2/3 of its length; last anal-fin ray not connected to body by a membrane; and fewer lateral line pores (31-32+1). Differs also from other Cottus in Atlantic drainages by the following characters: caudal peduncle stout (length 14-18% SL, depth 8-10% SL and 1.5-2.1 times in its length); no prickling in adults, a few prickles under pectoral fin in juveniles; eye diameter 20-25% of HL; interorbital distance 1.1-1.4 times in eye diameter; no membrane between last pelvic-fin ray and body; membranes between pelvic-fin rays wider distally (Ref. 55856).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=-1.95000 (nan - nan), b=3.11 (2.86 - 3.36), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (33 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Low.
