Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Body cigar-shaped; deep head conical with a short bulbous snout; preoral length 7.3-8.2 % TL. Eye almost round with a small opalescent lunate patch on upper eyelid margin. Pectoral fins small, rear tip about cornea diameter in front of D2 origin. Dorsal and ventral coloration dark; white conspicuous pineal blotch small and triangular. Caudal peduncle short (14.8-16.6% TL). Upper teeth of mature males usually with 7 cusps, others 9-11, in separated rows; central cusps greatly expanded, about 2 times longer than those adjacent. Denticles small, with a single erected, slightly curved cusps, arranged in irregular rows. Anterior branch of pelvic marking long and slender, posterior branch truncated.

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00339 (0.00157 - 0.00730), b=3.12 (2.92 - 3.32), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.2   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Fec assumed to be <100).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (39 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
