Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-9; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8 - 9. This small species (almost always less than 1.3 cm SL; smallest gravid female at 0.095 cm SL) is distinguished from its congeners by the following characters: cephalic sensory-pore lacking only the IT pore ( pattern 2); only some pectoral-fin rays are branched; dorsal/anal fin-ray formula of 9/8; fourth pelvic-fin ray with numerous branches (average 9.6); dark subcutaneous body bars 6, beginning at origin of anal fin; caudal-fin base with a dark, wedge-shaped mark and dark spots bordering upper and lower procurrent caudal-fin rays (Ref. 108793).

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=0.00589 (0.00270 - 0.01286), b=3.10 (2.92 - 3.28), 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) .
