Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 14 - 16; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-12; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 8 - 9; Vertebrae: 27. Distinguished from its congeners which have vermiculated color pattern on the cheek, snout and preopercle and a high vertebral count, but it differs from the rest by having a continuous lateral stripe, and in having the lateral dark pigment blotch positioned high on both sides of the body (Ref. 121640).

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=0.01585 (0.00598 - 0.04201), b=2.99 (2.76 - 3.22), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-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):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
