Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 36 - 37; Dorsal soft rays (total): 64-67; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 63 - 66. Can be diagnosed by the possession of the following characters: dorsal fin with 64-67 rays; anal fin with 63-66 rays and caudal fin with 18 rays; dorsal, anal and caudal fins almost entirely joined, but with distinct notches among dorsal-fin, anal-fin and caudal-fin outline; body sides and back dark brown with 4-5 zigzag longitudinal lines and forming a network from front of anal-fin origin to caudal-fin base; presence of a longitudinal brown line from the isthmus to anus on the abdomen or sometimes the line becoming network (Ref. 86860).

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=0.00295 (0.00132 - 0.00659), b=2.93 (2.74 - 3.12), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.4 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 to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
