Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 13-16; Anal soft rays: 15 - 18. This small slender species is distinguished by the following set of characters: adults with dorsal- and anal-fin bases covered with scales; pectoral-fin rays 9-10; total gill rakers on first arch 26-32; body slender with ratio of body depth at pectoral-fin origin to standard length usually less than 0.12 (<0.12 in 95% of 79 specimens examined); ratio of body depth at pelvic fin to standard length usually less than 0.12 (<0.12 in 89% of 79 specimens examined) (ref. 86266).

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=0.00240 (0.00106 - 0.00545), b=3.19 (3.00 - 3.38), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)Family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (11 of 100) .
