Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 25-28. Lateral trunk ridges deflected downwards and continuous with inferior tail ridge; inferior trunk and tail ridges not confluent; 16-17 trunk rings; tail rings 25-27; total rings 41-44; snout length 1.9-2.1 times in head length; body dark brown, without conspicuous series of darker spots on or above lateral trunk ridge (Ref. 36949).

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=0.00049 (0.00022 - 0.00110), b=3.10 (2.91 - 3.29), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 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 vulnerability (11 of 100) .
