Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

A species in the Lophiodes mutilus species group characterized by the presence of many diffuse black spots on the dorsal surface of head and body; an extremely long third dorsal-fin spine (71·9–7·2% LS), extending to the anterior third of caudal fin; a relatively wide and deep head [HW = 61·6–67·5% LH, head depth (HD) = 73·3–78·9% LH]; a relatively long snout (63·2–68·5% LH); a relatively broad interorbital space (distance between the last frontal spines, IF = 47·4–56·0% LH); a relatively short fifth dorsal-fin spine (11·4–16·5% LS); and 17–18 pectoral-fin rays (Ref. 88694).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 2.1 - 2.3, mean 2.2 (based on 14 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01995 (0.00910 - 0.04376), b=2.99 (2.79 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.0   ±0.7 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 (24 of 100) .
