Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 97-99; Anal soft rays: 81 - 83; Vertebrae: 57 - 59. Distinguished by having the following combination of characters: presence of 10-15 soft serrations and absence of spines on the posterior margin of preopercle; snout almost twice as long as horizontal diameter of pigmented eye; horizontal eye window 2.5-2.7% SL; two median and in the holotype also a pair of small basibranchial tooth patches; 10-11 developed rakers on anterior gill arch; sagittal otolith with undivided sulcus; and sulcus-length in percentage of sagitta-length 50-55 (Ref. 78399).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00407 (0.00156 - 0.01061), b=3.12 (2.90 - 3.34), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.6 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 (16 of 100) .
