Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Mugil longicauda differs from Mugil curvidens by the following: body depth (19.8-25.5% vs. 22.8-33.3% in Le); smaller head (17.8-20.2% vs. 26.2-34.2%) in SL or 5.0-5.6 vs. 2.9-3.8 times) in SL; insertion of first dorsal fin in closer to the snout tip than to the base of caudal fin in vs. equivalent; insertion of the second dorsal fin is about the middle of the anal fin vs. only slightly after the insertion of the anal fin; teeth long and their tips are upward vs. tip curved toward the interior of mouth; axillary scales only present in the pelvic fins vs. present in both paired fins; caudal peduncle is longer (6 vs. 5.3-5.6 times in SL); A III,9 vs. III,8; presence of a yellow-orange blotch on the opercula vs. absent (Ref. 101267).

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=0.01175 (0.00541 - 0.02553), b=2.98 (2.80 - 3.16), based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High vulnerability (61 of 100) .
