Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal soft rays: 8. Diagnosed by having the following characters: 35-37 lateral line scales (33-35 up to hypural base with 2-3 scales on caudal fin); 5-6 simple and 10-12 branched rays on the pectoral fin; 17 rays on the caudal fin (9+8); 15 body circumferential scales; body depth 16.8-19.8% SL; caudal peduncle slender and short (depth 5.6-7.1% SL and length 13.7-16.2% SL); ventral region free from scales, with 3-4 scale rows between pelvic fin insertion and pectoral fin insertion along the edge of the body; eye situated on the upper part of head, barely visible from ventral aspect; 7 dorsal spots, 3 predorsal and 4 postdorsal; 8 spots on the body placed in the space between the dorsal spots along the lateral line; presence of a spot at the insertion region of paired fins; and the membrane between simple ray and few anterior branched rays black (Ref. 78734).

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=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
