Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Body extremely slender. Dorsal and ventral coloration sharply contrasted; fine dark horizontal lines forming series of fine dots and dashes on upper half of body; a dark ventral saddle near middle of caudal peduncle. Head relatively short (usually < 21% TL). Caudal peduncle very elongate (usually > 23% TL). Eyes rather narrow; upper eyelid with pale naked patch. Denticles extremely dense, bristle-like, not arranged in defined rows.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 5.9 - 8.1, mean 6.8 (based on 26 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00347 (0.00156 - 0.00771), b=3.10 (2.90 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Fec assumed to be <100).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (38 of 100) .
