Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8. This species is distinguished by the following characters: complete cephalic sensory-canal pore system (pattern 1); some branched pectoral-fin rays; dorsal/anal-fin formula is 8/8; in males the first dorsal spine is filamentous; the fifth pelvic-fin ray may be absent or rudimentary; male urogenital papilla is a flat rounded plate; there are 3 bars extending down from lower half of eye; with a dark mark on the lower portion of the preopercular margin; dark bars angling down posteroventrally at the upper and lower portions of pectoral-fin base; there are a number of dark marks on underside of head (Ref. 107299).

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=0.00631 (0.00286 - 0.01390), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), 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) .
