Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8. Pectoral fin rays simple; spinous dorsal fin moderately elongate in both sexes, second and third rays longest, fifth pelvic fin ray well developed, two-tenths to three-tenths length of fourth ray; cephalic sensory pore system lacking IT and PITO pores, and AITO pore single (except double in smallest paratype) and very small; posterior rays of second dorsal and anal fins elongate, forming a lanceolate shape; preserved specimens generally whitish with dark pigment along base of anal fin, extending along ventral edge of caudal peduncle; small dark spot usually present at lower caudal fin base; nostrils dark and pair of brown spots of variable intensity usually present on top of head, just behind eyes (Ref. 44113).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

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=0.00589 (0.00270 - 0.01286), b=3.10 (2.92 - 3.28), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.3 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 (10 of 100) .
