Can be differentiated from all its congeners in having the lower half of the head covered by numerous small skin projections and 5 pores in the supratemporal canal of the cephalic lateral-line system. Additional distinguishing characters include white body, vestigial eyes, incomplete lateral line (reaching only to vertical above pelvic-fin origin) and absence of axillary pelvic bone (Ref. 57820).

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) .
