Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 15; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12-13; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 8 - 9. Head with straight profile, mouth relatively large; maxilla extending to below the anterior border of the eye; the eye relatively large with somewhat dorsolateral position; ventral outline of the body straight (Ref. 47362). Dorsal fin originating directly above the vertical of the posterior end of the operculum; posterior end of dorsal fin pointed; pectoral fin pointed; ventral fin usually reaching the vent; caudal fin truncate (Ref. 47362). Caudal peduncle as long as deep or a little deeper than long (Ref. 47362). Scales not denticulate (Ref. 47362). Unicuspid and bicuspid teeth present on the lower jaw; lower pharyngeal bone width 164% of its length (Ref. 47362). General body colour, the groundcolour, bright grey or yellowish on the lateral sides and blackish dorsolaterally; the ventral surface rosy or blackish reddens (Ref. 47362). Nine wide vertical black bars consisting of 7 bars along the flanks extending from the back ventrally about 2/3 way beyond the midline and of two head bars; the posterior head bar extending ventrally till just above the dorsal edge of the operculum, the anterior head bar short lying dorsal to the vertical of the posterior end of the eye; two longitudinal dark stripes present, the dorsal one extending from the ventral margin of the posterior head bar till the end of the dorsal fin base, the medial stripe running nearly along the midline of the flank from the dorsal hind edge of the operculum to the base of the caudal fin (Ref. 47362). Dorsal fin with or without tilapia mark; dorsal, anal and pelvic fins with black colour; caudal fin black with blackish outer edge; the pectoral fin colourless; black opercular spot present (Ref. 47362).

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=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±0.1 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 (13 of 100) .
Price category (Ref. 80766):   Unknown.
