Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-12. Distinguished from all other species of Catostomus by having the following combination of characters: 65-80 scales on lateral line; 9-12 dorsal fin with rays; 14-38 infraorbital pores; gill 24-31 gill rakers in specimens >20 cm SL; gill rakers with spines in clusters; caudal peduncle depth 6.4-9.3% SL; lateral fields of scales with either no radii or extensions of anterior radii; and foramen for the ninth cranial nerve between the exoccipital and prootic (Ref. 87374).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in coastal streams and lakes as well as in brackish water. Observed in large schools, following the tide and venturing some distance into brackish water . Spawns over gravel and cobble (Ref. 87374).

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=0.00501 (0.00207 - 0.01214), b=3.10 (2.88 - 3.32), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.9   ±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 (12 of 100) .
