Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 13; Dorsal soft rays (total): 13-15; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 13 - 16. This species is distinguished by the following characters: D XIII,13-15 (usually XIII,14); A II,13-16 (usually II,15); pectoral fin rays 16-18 (usually 17 or 18); tubed lateral line scales 16-18 (usually 17 or 18); gill rakers 5-7 + 15-16 = 20-23 (typically 21); body depth 2.5-2.8 in proportion to SL for specimens longer than 3.0 cm SL; caudal fin is deeply forked with a relatively long filamentous upper lobe (Ref. 95102).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = No PD50 data   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01479 (0.00662 - 0.03303), b=2.99 (2.80 - 3.18), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  2.5   ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
