Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 69; Anal soft rays: 56; Vertebrae: 41. This species is distinguished by the following characters: anterior nostril placed low on snout; tip of opercular spine free; male copulatory organs with 2 pairs of equally sized psedoclaspers, larger than in all other American dinematichthyine species; inner pseudoclasper formed like a forward-pointing hook; eyes large (2.9% SL); head with broad scale patch on cheek; otolith with fused colliculi; 1 lower preopercular pore; maxillary knob at rear corner; 3 elongated rakers on anterior gill arch; anterior anal fin pterygiophore long; predorsal length long (35.3% SL), ventral fins short (16.4% SL), ending well in front of the anal opening (Ref. 55786).

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).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.5 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) .
