Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Neobythites multiocellatus differs from the other eight West Atlantic Neobythites species by having 3 (rarely 4) ocelli on the dorsal fin, the anterior of which is placed somewhat behind a line through the origin of the anal fin, and by the following combination of characters: 0–1(weak) spine on hind margin of preopercle, total number of vertebrae 54–59, dorsal fin rays 94–101, anal fin rays 79–90 (Ref. 82372).

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=0.00407 (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):  3.5   ±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 (20 of 100) .
