Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 91-92; Anal soft rays: 76; Vertebrae: 53 - 54. The ventral fins reach beyond the origin of anal fin. The hind margin of preoperculum has two spines. There are eleven (11) long rakers on the anterior gill arch. The anterior ocellus is at the origin of the dorsal fin, while the second and larger ocellus is posterior to the anus.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Rare species (Ref. 34024) found to feed on gastropods (Ref. 31524). Reproductive strategy possibly similar to other members of this family featuring oviparity, with oval pelagic eggs floating in a gelatinous mass (Ref. 205).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 8.3 - 13.4, mean 12.6 (based on 16 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00407 (0.00156 - 0.01061), b=3.12 (2.90 - 3.34), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.58 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assuming tmax>3).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (19 of 100) .
