Name refers to the functional analogy with the pseudoclaspers, to the specific shape of the ‘middle’ pseudoclasper.;  gomoni: Named for Martin Gomon, NMV, Melbourne, Australia,.   More on author: Schwarzhans.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 92-109; Anal soft rays: 70 - 81; Vertebrae: 45 - 50. This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: anterior nostril low on snout; copulatory organ of males with 3 pairs of pseudoclaspers, all joined at base in narrow stalked stem, the outer pseudoclasper is wing-shaped, V-shaped flap-like inner pseudoclasper anteriorly joined to outer pseudoclasper, short, second inner pseudoclasper inserted between the two, intermediate in length, finger-like in shape, with supporter; moderately large species, reaching to about 7.0 cm SL; 13-14 precaudal vertebrae, 45-50 total vertebrae; 22-26 pectoral fin rays; 8-9 branchiostegal rays; a small scale patch on upper cheek only on the head; scales on operculum absent; upper preopercular pore present; small pore below the eye; elongated otolith, its length to height 2.1-2.3, inclined sulcus, fused colliculi; maxilla is expanded posterio-ventrally (Ref. 76869).

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=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.5 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) .
