Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Differentiated from P. binotatus in having a dark wedge-shaped marking (vs. a round spot) on the sides of the body immediately below the dorsal fin. However, since there seems to be a considerable amount of variation in the markings between populations, if may also mean that banksi and binotatus represent 2 extreme color forms of a single species.

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00933 (0.00390 - 0.02229), b=3.06 (2.84 - 3.28), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±0.3 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 to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
