Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal soft rays: 22 - 26; Vertebrae: 39 - 40. This species is distinguished from most of its congeners by the number of lateral line scales (41-44 vs. 39-41 or 44-58). It shares similar lateral line counts with some of its congeners, but differs from H. boquiae, H. metae, H. polyodon, and H. taeniurus by the number of scales along anal-fin base scale sheath (6-10 vs. 10-24). It differs from H. jabonero by the number of gill rakers (17-18 vs. 19-21); from H. brevispini by the number of cusps of three anteriormost dentary teeth (5 vs. 3), and by absence of bony hooks in the caudal-fin rays of males (vs. presence); from H. divisorensis and H. surinamensis by the absence of a wide black asymmetrical spot covering base of caudal-fin rays; from H. helleri and H. jelskii by the size of humeral spot (over 7-8 vs. 5-6 horizontal series of scales; from H. helleri by the number of predorsal scales (13-16 vs.16-18), and by the total number of vertebrae (41-43 vs. 39-40); from H. mikrostiktos by the size of humeral spot (6-7 vs. 2-3 horizontal series of scales), and by total number of pelvic-fin rays (7 vs. 8); from H. paez, H. quindos, and H. virolinica by the number of cusps of premaxillary inner row teeth (5-7 vs. 3-4); from H. rafaelense and H. raqueliae by the number of predorsal scales (13-16 vs. 10-12 and 10-13); from H. raqueliae by the number of cusps of first maxillary tooth (3 vs. 5) (Ref. 85819).

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=0.00603 (0.00258 - 0.01408), b=3.16 (2.96 - 3.36), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
