Dorsal soft rays (total): 68-75; Anal soft rays: 48 - 52; Vertebrae: 36 - 38. DIAGNOSIS: Dorsal rays 68-75; anal rays 48-52; dorsal and anal rays branched except for a few anterior rays; lateral-line scales 70-78, including 9 or 10 anterior to a vertical at upper end of gill opening; lateral line on ocular side projecting toward dorsal part of upper eye; vertebrae 36-38; dorsal pterygiophores anterior to fourth neural spine 11-13; body depth 2.4-2.45 in SL; head length (HL) 4.05-4.35 in SL; snout length 2.65-2.95 in HL; eye diameter 4.6-5.05 in HL; interorbital space very narrow, the least vertical width 26-33 in HL; tubular anterior nostril nearly reaching eyeball when laid back; cirri on front of snout and ventral side of head small and slender; no cirri on opercle at edge of gill opening, and none along edge of membranous ridges of dorsal and anal rays; caudal peduncle present but very short, the length 10.2-17.7 in HL; caudal-peduncle depth 1.7-1.95 in HL; longest dorsal ray 1.65-1.8 in HL; caudal-fin length 4.2-4.7 in SL; pelvic-fin length 1.75-2.0 in HL, reaching base third anal ray; color of ocular side when fresh brown, the edges of scales darker brown, with numerous irregular dark-edged white spots, the largest (most smaller than eye) in three rows, one below dorsal .n, one above anal .n, and one along lateral line, where most irregular; scattered small blackish spots, some specimens with indistinct larger blackish blotches alternating with large white spots of the three rows; fin rays with small brown and larger white spots, the membranes translucent. Color in alcohol with white spots, faint to absent and dark spots subdued (Ref. 57561).

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=0.01096 (0.00511 - 0.02351), b=3.06 (2.87 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.5 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 (19 of 100) .
