Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal soft rays: 16; Vertebrae: 54. Body brown black; paired caudal fins not pigmented; dorsal and anal fins pigmented; adipose fin brilliant black. Chin barbel long, almost twice as long as the head, tapering to the end; with 2 glandular bulbs, the anterior one appearing as spindle-shaped expansion of the shaft which begins just behind the articulation with the chin and occupies nearly 1/3 of the length of the barbel; posterior bulb like a terminal proboscis of the barbel (Ref. 41472).

Estimates of some properties based on empirical models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00347 (0.00128 - 0.00936), b=3.11 (2.87 - 3.35), based on LWR estimates for this Subfamily-BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.7   ±0.6 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 (19 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
