Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 8; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal soft rays: 7. This species is distinguishec by the following characters: barbels are white to yellowish distally, with the tips usually extending beyond posterior margin of preopercle; upper jaw somewhat slender and shorter in specimens that are greater than 5.0 cm SL (upper-jaw length times maxillary depth 60.5-96.9%, mean 74.4% of SL]; second anal-fn soft ray is long, its length 47.2-55.2% (51.3%) of caudal-fn length; 2-3 very indistinct blackish vertical bands on trunk, the frst located under frst dorsal fin (most indistinct, sometimes absent), the second below inter-dorsal-fin space and the third below anterior part of second dorsal fin; a very indistinct blackish saddle on upper caudal peduncle; dense melanophores uniformly distributed on the anal-fin membranes in most preserved specimens (Ref. 123210).

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=0.01202 (0.00556 - 0.02601), b=3.10 (2.93 - 3.27), 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):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (30 of 100) .
