Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 26 - 27; Vertebrae: 31 - 32. Fewer total anal rays than B. balunga (28-29 versus 30). More lateral scales than B. balunga and B. chini (31 1/2-32 1/2 versus 29-31). More lateral scales below dorsal-fin origin (18-19, versus 15-18). Greater total length than B. balunga and B. chini (145.5-153.5% SL, versus 132.8-144.6). Shorter head length than B. balunga (31.3-31.7% SL versus 32.6-35.5). Deeper body depth at dorsal-fin origin than B. akarensis and B. chini (30.6-31.6% SL versus 25.1-30.9). Shorter preanal length than B. balunga (44.7-46.3% SL versus 49.2-52.2). It has the most pigmented opercle pattern with a darkly pigmented opercle distal edge and many spots (more than 7 versus 5 or less, or stripes) (Ref. 30224).

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=0.01122 (0.00514 - 0.02450), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±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 (10 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
