Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 39 - 40. Can be diagnosed from other species of Batasio by the combination of the following characters: dorsal to adipose distance 1.7-4.1% SL; snout length 39.2-45.5% head length; eye diameter 24.6-29.8% head length; gill rakers on the first branchial arch 4-5; pectoral spine length 14.6-17.6% standard length; adipose-fin base length 31.0-34.9% standard length; post-adipose distance 10.6-13.7% standard length; branched pectoral fin rays 9-10; 39-40 vertebrae; and body with a dark-brown oblique predorsal bar on a uniform light-brown background (Ref. 87063).

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=0.01072 (0.00413 - 0.02777), b=2.97 (2.74 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.3 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) .
