Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 10.9 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 49783)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-11; Anal soft rays: 7 - 8. Distinguished from its congeners by having a stout caudal peduncle (depth 72.4-82.5% of its length); and the medium sized scaleless midventral region extended slightly beyond halfway from pectoral - to pelvic-fin origin. Further differs in having coarsely crenulated rostral fold with 18-23 indentations on distal margin and small mental adhesive disc (length 66.7-71.4% of its width) (Ref. 49783).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00550 (0.00219 - 0.01380), b=3.03 (2.82 - 3.24), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.2   ±0.1 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) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
