Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 7 - 8; Vertebrae: 26. This species is distinguished by the following characters: fifth pelvic-fin ray absent or rudimentary; 5 or fewer dark internal spots or bands between anal-fin origin and caudal fin; no distinct markings on pectoral-fin base; similar with E. nigramembrana, it has a small, dark occipital spot; differs from E. nigramembrana by not having an obvious area of dark pigment on the opercular membrane; edges of the scale pockets are more heavily pigmented than E. nigramembrana; has a dark internal mark above the midline of the ural centrum (vs. on the middle of the centrum in E. nigripinna and over the entire centrum in E. winterbottomi); dorsal fin dark dusky basally and marginally, pale or light dusky in central portion of fin (Ref. 96083).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 28.4 - 29.2, mean 28.8 (based on 399 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00617 (0.00281 - 0.01352), b=3.08 (2.89 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±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 (10 of 100) .
