Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 12; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 12. This species is distinguished by the following characters: D XII,9-10; caudal-fin rays 9-10 + 2 + 10; pectoral-fin rays ii, 14-15; 30 lateral-line scales; 4-4.5 scales above lateral line; 10.5-12 scales below lateral line; about 8-10 predorsal scales; 14-18 total gill rakers; moderate depth in body and caudal peduncle; short snout; scaly basal sheath on dorsal and anal fins ½–2 scales in depth; posterior corner of mouth just posterior to vertical through forward extent of orbit; upper jaw with the first prominent anterior canine slightly smaller than second; moderately developed canines on dental ridge in small individuals 2-10, less distinct in larger specimens; prominent canines at posterior end of jaw 1–2 (usually 2); lower jaw with first prominent anterior canine slightly more than half size of second; teeth in 2 or 3 series on dental ridge, forming single row; first series with 3–9 small canines becoming progressively longer posteriorly, originating immediately posterior to anterior canines; first series followed by 4–10 short canines in series, sometimes 2 slightly larger canines terminally; vomer 1 or 2 canines; pelvic fin distinctly not reaching anus (Ref. 75973).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01230 (0.00548 - 0.02760), b=3.04 (2.84 - 3.24), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.44 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (22 of 100) .
