Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 2. Height first dorsal greater than head length. Underside of snout, suborbital and all of mandibular rami naked; prominent open pores on lower jaws and ventral margin of suborbital region. Spinules on body scales needlelike, in subparallel to convergent rows; about 38 lateral line scales over distance equal to predorsal length. Snout conical, bluntly pointed, about 34% of HL. Mouth small, upper jaw 26% of HL. Teeth in notably broad, short, cardiform bands in both jaws. No dark band encircling trunk; first dorsal fin dusky overall. Anterior dermal window of light organ between pelvic bases, in advance of insertions. Barbel small, more than 3 into orbit, about 6% of HL; preoral length 28%; postorbital length 38%; orb.-preop. 30%.

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=0.00219 (0.00097 - 0.00495), b=3.17 (2.98 - 3.36), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.1 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 (30 of 100) .
