Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 2; Dorsal soft rays (total): 6-7; Anal soft rays: 50 - 59; Vertebrae: 52 - 54. Diagnosed from other species of the genus by the combination of the following characters: gill rakers on the first gill arch 15-19; branched pectoral-fin rays 15-17; accessory premaxillary tooth patch extending posteriorly nearly to the terminus of the gape; branched anal-fin rays 46-54; posterior limit of the gape located under orbit; fleshy flap along the anterior margin of the posterior naris extending medial of the medial margin of the naris by a distance equal to, or greater than, the transverse dimension of the posterior naris; length of the pectoral-fin spine 16.8-18% SL; lateral margin of the pectoral spine rough; snout in lateral view somewhat rounded; and dorsal view slightly trilobed (Ref. 75095).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00562 (0.00255 - 0.01239), b=3.03 (2.84 - 3.22), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (36 of 100) .
