Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 7. This species is distinguished by the following characters: pectoral-fin rays ii, 14-15; gill rakers 10-12; body is moderately elongate, depth 3.2-3.6 in SL; head length is equal to or a little more than body depth; diameter of eye about equal to or a little less than snout length, 0.9-1.4 in snout; lower margin of eye is just above a line from tip of snout to upper pectoral-fin base; suborbital is moderately deep, its lower edge slightly emarginate, least depth 1.2-1.7 in eye diameter; an imaginary line extend upward from posterior edge of suborbital reaching dorsal profile somewhere between 3-7 scale rows before origin of dorsal fin; pectoral fins are moderately long, reaching to or just beyond level of vent; pelvic fins are very long, reaching to or just beyond origin of anal fin; caudal fin with the upper rays pointed or produced to form short filament (Ref. 116612).

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=0.01380 (0.00647 - 0.02946), b=2.96 (2.79 - 3.13), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.9   ±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.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (21 of 100).
