Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 47; Anal soft rays: 39; Vertebrae: 50. This species is distinguished from its congeners by the following set of characters: total vertebrae 50; D 47; A 39; pectoral-fin rays 32; principal caudal-fin rays 10; pectoral proximal radials 4 (first to third with notches); both jaws with trilobate teeth; gill slit 7.1 % SL, extending in front of 7th pectoral-fin ray base; maximum body depth is 19.1 % SL; disk length 7.9 % SL; the anus midway between posterior margin of pelvic disk and anal-fin origin. Colour of body and fins light orange, except for the blackish peritoneum (occipital region, operculum and anterior half of tail lacking epidermis; dorsal and anal fins partly lacking membranes) (Ref. 120239).

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=0.00417 (0.00188 - 0.00927), b=3.20 (3.02 - 3.38), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.5 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):   (0 of 100) .
