Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Robust somewhat compressed and not very deep body (from 2.8 to 3.0 times in the standard length). Very small and terminal mouth whose posterior edge is located in front of the anterior edge of the eye. The profile of the head is straight. Has 19 to 21 rakers in the first gill arch. The dorsal fins is very notched with 12 spines and 14 to 15 soft rays (XII, 14-15). The second anal fin is stronger but shorter than the third. When plied the third spine never surpasses the base of the last anal ray; Opaque gray body wit a lighter belly. The axilla of the pectoral fins and the upper edge of the operculum are black (Ref. 55763).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found over sandy or muddy bottoms of coastal waters (Ref. 9114).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01778 (0.01021 - 0.03098), b=2.97 (2.82 - 3.12), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.4 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):  Low to moderate vulnerability (31 of 100) .
