Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 85; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 71; Vertebrae: 83 - 97. This genus is distinguished by the following characters: presence of submental crests, not fused anteriorly; elongated and narrow neurocranium; the frontal bones are totally fused with no trace of a suture, the frontal corner squared; long frontal ramus; the sphenotic and parietal separated by pterotic; parietal bones meet in the mid-line; parasphenoid wing height high; juncture of ceratohyal-epihyal is smooth; branchiostegal rays 5; posterior hyomandibular ramus elongate; well developed palatal arch and posttemporal ventral ramus; scapular foramen enclosed by bone; with scapular strut; 4 notched radials (= actinosts); with postcleithrum; 85 dorsal fin-rays (last 7 counted from dorsal-fin pterygiophores); 71 anal-fin rays (last 10 counted from anal-fin pterygiophores); 18 pectoral fin rays; presence of pelvic bone; vertebrae asymmetrical (21+68=89); ribs on 4?21 abdominal vertebrae; 1 epural; dorsal-fin origin associated with vertebrae 4; well developed oral valve; gill slit extending ventrally to lower end of pectoral-fin base; blunt gill rakers; nub-like pyloric caeca; presence of scales, palatine and vomerine teeth; pale oral cavity; black peritoneum; a blurred brown band between the anteroventral edge of the eye and the upper jaw. Additional diagnostic characters are the following: frontal and parasphenoid not separated by pterosphenoid; supraoccipital-exoccipìtal articulation excluded by epioccipitals; no supratemporal commissure and occipital pores; ascending rami of the parasphenoid reaches the upper margin of the trigeminofacialis foramen; well developed intercalar, not reaching prootic; 8-9 suborbital bones, canal with 7 pores; postorbital pores 1 and 4; single posterior nasal pore; cartilaginous basal plate of pectoral girdle with three foramina; vertebrae asymmetrical (19-21+ 64-77 = 83-97); dorsal-fin origin associated with vertebrae 2-4; well developed oral valve; blunt gill rakers; pelvic-fin rays ensheathed; squamation extensive, but head and pectoral-fin base and axil have no scales; lateral line mediolateral, palatine teeth 9-23; vomerine teeth 7-17 (Ref. 90127).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 4.5 - 9.7, mean 6.6 (based on 341 cells; Ref. 115970).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00234 (0.00106 - 0.00519), b=3.24 (3.04 - 3.44), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (43 of 100) .
