Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 80; Anal soft rays: 52; Vertebrae: 62. This species is distinguished from its congener T. disjunctus, by the following characters: pectoral fin peduncle much longer than its width (vs. equal in length); precaudal vertebrae 22 (vs. 16); total vertebrae 62 (vs. 52); long rakers on first gill arch 14 (vs. 6); horizontal eye diameter 3.1% SL (vs. 1.3% SL); interorbital width 0.8% SL (vs. 3.3% SL); no posterior mandibular pore (vs. present); anterior infraorbital pores 1 (vs. 3); opercular spine not covered by skin (vs. covered by skin); otolith height to thickness 2.5 (vs. 1.8); in alcohol head and body light brown (vs. dark brown) (Ref. 93598).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.5 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 (10 of 100) .
