Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11. Distinguished by the following combination of characters: snout blunt; lateral line complete; 8 1/2 branched dorsal-fin rays; 9+8 branched caudal-fin rays; no sexual dimorphism; 8-11 indistinct bars, wider than interspaces; caudal-peduncle length 14.1-16.5% standard length, 68.1-90.4% HL; anterior portion of body scaleless; air bladder entirely embedded in bony capsule; lateral head length 105.0-121.9% head length; lower jaw with a notch at symphysis; lower lip completely interrupted; interorbital width 1.9-2.2 times eye diameter; pelvic-fin origin ventral to dorsal-fin origin; anus 1.0-1.5 eye diameter anterior of anal-fin origin; the widest part of black basal caudal bar is the midlateral, and then the upper and lower ends (Ref. 56368).

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=0.00513 (0.00215 - 0.01225), b=3.09 (2.88 - 3.30), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)Family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±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 vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
