Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 5. This species can be diagnosed from all congeners by having the following combination of characters: two stripe above lateral line, exceeding posteriorly the length of pectoral fins, and then scattered cloudly speckles between dorsal blotches and latera spots; 10-13 elongated oval blotches along midlateral line of body; one distintict black elongated or semicircular spot at the base of the caudal fin; slender and long needle-shaped lamina circularis in males; scales slightly elongated, with small focal area; caudal pedunce depth 1.1-1.2 (mean 1.1) times of its length in females and 1.1 in males; 4+37-38+1 vertebrae (Ref. 95089).

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=0.00525 (0.00231 - 0.01193), b=3.07 (2.89 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±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) .
