Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

This species is distinguished from its congeners by the following set of characters: body brownish or greyish with a narrowly wedge-shaped disc; a long narrow bluntly pointed snout (angle 31-40°); broad oblique nostrils with the narrow anterior opening; nostrils about half of the mouth width, subequal (0.98-1.33) to internasal width; ~55-57 nasal lamellae; anterior nasal flaps are slightly penetrating into internasal space, their interspace 2.20- 2.61 in length of the posterior nasal aperture; in adults the orbit is very small, diameter 8.19-11.62 in preorbital length, 2.25-2.69 in interorbital space; rostral ridges are almost joined along their entire length; margin of cranium sharply demarcated before eyes; spiracular folds are very short and widely separated; rough skin densely covered with small denticles, more coarsely granular on the dorsal surface than ventrally, enlarged between orbits and in a distinct band between nape and first dorsal fin; tail relatively longer, its length 1.15-1.48 in disc length; dorsal fins narrowly spaced, interspace 1.32-2.11 in base length of the first dorsal fin; clasper length in adult male 4.37-5.70 in total length (Ref. 125646).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804):  PD50 = No PD50 data   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00138 - 0.01098), b=3.04 (2.80 - 3.28), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Basso, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione 4.5 - 14 anni (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High vulnerability (57 of 100).
