Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 16-18; Anal soft rays: 16 - 18; Vertebrae: 34. This species is distinguished by the following characters: a prominent spiny projection of the rostral process of the first infraorbital bone [type M of Richards (1992)]; short opercular spine, barely projecting to edge of opercular flap; moderate length of pectoral fin (30.9-38.2%SL), reaching anal fin origin; weakly attached scales, ctenoid above and immediately below lateral line (transforming cteni type of Roberts, 1993), grading to cycloid on the belly; scaled nape, naked breast and interpelvic area; lateral line scales 64-67, 3 to 5 scale rows above and 21 to 26 rows below the lateral line; D1 IX, D2 16-18; A16-18; 11 plus 3 free pectoral rays; 25-26 bucklers along base of dorsal fins; vertebrae 34 (precaudal 11, caudal 23); head length short (27.1-29.7%SL); interorbital width narrow (5.3-6.0%SL); gill rakers on first ceratobranchial 6-7 short (1.3-1.7%SL) (Ref. 26892).

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=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (25 of 100) .
