Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 8; Dorsal soft rays (total): 16; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 14; Vertebrae: 23. The males of this species are distinguished from all its congeners by possessing an expansive cornucopia-shaped translucent lateral flank patch, while both sexes can be further distinguished from P. elongatus and P. rivulatus, by the more or less bullet-shaped flank patch; a deeper body 34.4-39.2 (vs. 12.5-29.7% of SL); and, vermiculate pigmentation pattern on the upper flank with thin wavy lines forming semi-circles and oval shapes (vs. larger rounded blotches). Both sexes of this species differ from P. leuciscus and P. klunzingeri, by the triangular flank patch; absence of a markedly elongate second dorsal-fin spine; and the vermiculate pigmentation pattern on the upper flank, with thin wavy lines forming semi-circles and oval shapes (vs. speckled). Adults of both sexes of also grow to a larger size than congeners, except P. leuciscus (Ref. 59114).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5010   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01905 (0.00853 - 0.04255), b=2.98 (2.80 - 3.16), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±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 (15 of 100) .
