Etymology: Trimma: Greek, trimma, -atos = something crushed (Ref. 45335); omanensis: Named for its type locality, Gulf of Oman. More on author: Winterbottom.
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range

Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
soft rays: 8 - 10. This species is distinguished by the following characters: a distinct crescent-shaped bar present on the posterior edge of the pectoral base, it extends onto the base of the fin rays; scaleless head and predorsal midline; interorbital and postorbital trenches well-developed; fifth pelvic fin ray branches dichotomously twice (Ref. 118045).

Estimates based on models
Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969
): 24.9 - 28.1, mean 26.9 °C (based on 327 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00421 - 0.01885), b=3.07 (2.89 - 3.25), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-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) .
