Morphology | Morphometrics
This species is distinguished from its congeners mainly by the following set of characters: a faint proboscis on the snout, the transverse lobe and lateral surface of snout covered with several unicuspid tubercles; chest and belly covered by scales; branched dorsal-fin rays 7½-8½, branched anal-fin rays 4½; lateral-line scales 39-42; predorsal scales 13-14; circumpeduncular scale rows 12-13; body depth 13.5-17.6% of standard length, caudal-peduncle depth 8.8-11.0% of SL, distance from anus to anal fin 47-56% of pelvic-anal distance; it differs further from G. kempi by having fewer branched anal-fin rays, a shallower body and a more slender caudal peduncle (Ref. 119421).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= No PD50 data [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00724 (0.00309 - 0.01700), b=3.07 (2.89 - 3.25), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
