Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 6; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 5; Vertebrae: 42 - 44. Distinguished from its congeners in having 6 branched dorsal fin rays; no thickened rays in the unpaired fins; caudal peduncle laterally compressed and shorter than the head; pelvic fins inserted on the level of mid-base of the dorsal fin; 4 pectoral bony radials, where second radial is only slightly expanded and weakly blocked with the first radial; anterior and posterior nares closely spaced; occipital canal continuous with 3 pores; well-developed free air-bladder portion in the abdominal cavity; intestine long and spirally coiled; complete body lateral line; sphenotic contacting epiotic; minute anterior fontanelle in the skull; 4 basibranchials and 2 pairs of infrapharyngobranchials in the branchial apparatus; the pads of the breeding tubercles are weakly-developed in the preorbital region of the mature males, and such pad below the infraorbital canal is comma-shaped (Ref. 57977).

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=0.00617 (0.00292 - 0.01304), b=3.03 (2.84 - 3.22), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±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 (22 of 100) .
