Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Single, long and thin postcleithrum, well separate from the cleithrum (indicates loss of upper postcleithrum); basisphenoid reduced and loosely attached to the neurocranium; reduced pterosphenoid excluded from external surface of neurocranium; swimbladder in adults; lower jaw margin with well-developed labial flaps; left and right dentaries sutured together; males with distal tips of dorsal and anal-fin rays expanded and with flaplike structures, with fleshy flap near base of anterior margin of first dorsal-fin spine; in comparison to females, males lack conspicuous banding pattern; unbranched central caudal-fin rays; number of epurals reduced from 2 to 1 (Ref. 94102)

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults exhibit conspicuous sexual dimorphism (Ref. 94102). Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Oviparous, distinct pairing (Ref. 205).

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=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), based on all LWR estimates for this 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 (10 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
