Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 67-77; Anal soft rays: 46 - 53; Vertebrae: 40 - 43. The species is characterized by the following: vertebrae 11-14 + 27-31 = 40-43, dorsal fin rays 67-77, anal fin rays 46-53; no scales on the head and body; posterior nostril large, about half size of eye; lower preopercular pore large, about size of posterior nostril or larger; weak spine on maxilla positioned behind rear tip of eye; single pair of pseudoclaspers curved, expanded and paddle-like, longer than penis, without fleshy appendices; otolith with pointed posterior tip and concavity above and massive postdorsal angle, otolith length to height ratio 1.9-2.0, sulcus with divided colliculi (Ref. 57886).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs along rocky shores at shallow depths. A female specimen (AMS 15330-037, 42 mm SL), contained 3 embryos, 11-16 mm SL. The species is pale except for some weak pigmentation on top of head (Ref. 57886).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 20 - 23.3, mean 21.8 (based on 15 cells; Ref. 115970).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00447 (0.00175 - 0.01142), b=3.10 (2.88 - 3.32), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.5 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) .
