Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 15; Anal soft rays: 8. Distinguished from congeners (Traccatichthys pulcher and T. zispi) in China in having a wider interorbital space (width 39.1-48.4% HL vs. 27.4-33.7 in T. zispi and 27.2-35.4 in T. pulcher), a longer caudal peduncle (length 14.6-19.9% SL vs. 11.9-15.4 and 12.6-14.1), and longer pectoral fins (length 16.1-22.2% SL vs. 13.2-17.9 and 11.9-17.6). Similar to T. zispi in the shared absence of a black band along the leading dorsal-fin rays, subdistal and median black bands across the dorsal fin, and submarginal black streaks on the caudal-fin lobes that are characteristic of T. pulcher, but differs from T. zipsi in having a more anteriorly (vs. posteriorly) positioned anal fin (preanal length 72.0-76.5% SL (vs. 77.6-81.7). Differs from T. taeniatus from Vietnam in having a roughly round (vs. vertically elongated) black bar on the caudal-fin base, and in lacking a black band along the posterior part of the distal margin of the anal fin (Ref. 93045).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00631 (0.00296 - 0.01347), b=3.04 (2.86 - 3.22), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.7   ±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 (23 of 100) .
