Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 7; Raggi anali molli: 11 - 12; Vertebre: 37 - 39. Excluding Pseudecheneis paviei, Pseudecheneis sulcatoides, and Pseudecheneis sympelvica, this species differs from other all congeners by the absence of a prominent bony spur on the anterodorsal surface of the first dorsal-fin pterygiophore. Can be separated from these three species by the combination of the following characters: body elongate with 36-39 vertebrae; thoracic adhesive apparatus with 12-14 transverse laminae; separate pelvic fin; caudal peduncle length 25.0-28.3% SL; presence of a first-dorsal element; complex vertebra with bifid neural spines. Additional characters useful to distinguish this species include: caudal-peduncle depth 4.0-5.2% SL; eye diameter 8.8-10.6% HL; pelvic-fin length 21.2-28.7% SL; length of adipose-fin base 17.8-22.7%; body with pale colored patches; neural spines of the last 2-3 preanal and first 6-7 postanal vertebrae gradually increasing in height; pectoral fin length 121.6-156.3% HL; and vertebrae 37 (Ref. 74729).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00676 (0.00307 - 0.01489), b=3.07 (2.88 - 3.26), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Medio, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione 1.4 - 4.4 anni (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (38 of 100) .
