Max length : 12.8 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 11333); 15.4 cm SL (female)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 25; Anal soft rays: 38; Vertebrae: 68. Two terminal bulbs separated by a short interspace, 0.3-1.5 times length of distal bulb. Barbel 52-63% SL in specimens larger than 8 cm. Terminal filament long (11-22% SL except in smallest specimen; with 2-4 long branches arising closely together a short distance (less than 0.5 to about 1.3 distal bulb lengths) from distal bulb. All branches with very small bulblets and without sub-branches. Stem axis well pigmented except in smallest specimen (6.6 cm); stem between bulbs and proximal part of filament usually lightly pigmented. Middorsal paired spots under skin between occiput and dorsal-fin origin usually 8, sometimes 7 (Ref. 11333).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 18 - 27.8, mean 25.2 (based on 141 cells; Ref. 115970).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.3   ±0.8 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Assuming tmax>3).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (25 of 100) .
