Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 4; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7-9. D IV, 7-9; A 3/6; L. lat. 24-28. The mouth of this species has a more ventral position than its congeners, being almost inferior. The upper profile of the body is convex, the lower almost horizontal; in this respect, exulatus is more similar to canis. The striae on the scales are parallel; lips smooth; last unbranched ray of the dorsal fin ossified and its posterior margin quite finely serrated or smooth. C. exulatus is the only species of the genus in which both pairs of barbels are always present, the barbels of the anterior pair being often very short, but not quite rudimentary (Ref.57642).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [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), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assuming Fec < 10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (47 of 100) .
