Morphology | Morphometrics
Differs from the other species of the genus by possessing the unique color pattern with a black, conspicuous, midlateral stripe with well defined edges, extending from somewhat in front of vertical through dorsal-fin origin to middle of caudal-fin base, whose width is regularly decreasing backwards, and a large diamond-shaped blotch on the end of the caudal peduncle and the base of the caudal fin, extending over most of the depth of the base of the fin (Ref. 55979).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.2 ±0.4 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 (16 of 100) .
