Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 41 - 42. Body elongate, compressed laterally, with greatest depth at dorsal-fin origin and least depth of caudal peduncle slightly closer to caudal-fin base than to posterior end of anal-fin base. Dorsal profile of body gradually ascending from snout tip to dorsal-fin origin; from there to origin of dorsal procurrent caudal-fin rays profile slightly concave. Ventral profile from tip of snout to pectoral-fin insertion nearly straight; from there to anal-fin origin convex; anal-fin base straight; from posterior end of anal-fin base to origin of ventral procurrent caudal-fin rays slightly concave. Head relatively small, longer than wide. Eye medium-sized with a wide, slightly convex interorbital space, dorsolaterally placed in anterior half of head. Snout blunt in lateral view and pointed in dorsal view, with a shallow groove running along anteroventral border of lachrymal from rostral-barbel base to lateral extremity of rostral cap; no tubercles on its tip and anterior portion of lachrymal. Two pairs of well-developed barbels; rostral barbel positioned at anterior end of shallow sublachrymal groove on each side of snout and extending to posterior margin of eye or not; maxillary barbel rooted in corner of mouth, originating from exterior surface of confluence between lateral lobe of lower lip and lateral extremity of rostral cap, and extending beyond posterior margin of eye to opercle. Mouth inferior and arched. (Ref. 86883).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00977 (0.00434 - 0.02202), b=3.02 (2.84 - 3.20), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (24 of 100) .
