Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 2; Anal spines: 0. Snout short, blunt, with a broad spinous scute at its tip, its leading edge and most of its underside naked; suborbital shelf very narrow anteriorly; interopercle broadly rounded posteriorly; chin with very short barbel. Scales rather deciduous; body scales with 3 to 10 low, subparallel rows of spinules; gill and gular membranes and interopercle naked. Pyloric caeca short, 5 to 7. Overall color is grayish brown; fins blackish to dusky; oral and gill cavities blackish.

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=0.00363 (0.00174 - 0.00758), b=3.05 (2.87 - 3.23), based on LWR estimates for species & Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.7   ±0.5 se; Based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (46 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Medium.
