Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 5; Dorsal soft rays (total): 22-24; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 19. This species is distinguished by the following characters: upper body with 5 vertical transverse bars, each extending laterally to lower two-thirds of body; D V, 23, with the spines becoming progressively longer posteriorly, and the last spine entirely connected to first dorsal-fin ray by membrane; A 1,19; entire body covered by ctenoid scales, except for those on chest; predorsal scales extending forward to vertical from preopercle; generally 4 pairs of canine teeth anteriorly in lower jaw; 2 rows of stout palatine teeth, those on outer row larger than inner; vomer with triangular patch of stout teeth; pelvic fin when appressed not reaching anus (Ref. 90385).

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=0.00631 (0.00284 - 0.01403), b=3.10 (2.92 - 3.28), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (16 of 100) .
