Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 8. This species is distinguished by the following characters: males with a cup-like urogenital papilla; cephalic sensory-canal pore system only without the IT pore (pattern 2); some pectoral-fin rays are branched; dorsal/anal fin-ray formula 9/8; preural centrum with a dark spot; absence of a wedge-shaped dark spot at caudal-fin base; pectoral-fin base without the prominent dark distinct spots; when alive, with four obscure postanal subcutaneous bars, some broken, none completely vertical, the first 3 extending dorsally just above lateral midline, the last falling just short of lateral midline; 2 distinctive white (yellow in life) areas, one behind eye above operculum and the other on upper two-thirds of pectoral-fin base; when preserved the dorsal and anal fins are black, caudal fin dusky (Ref. 108968).

Estimates of some properties based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 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
): 2.9 ±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) .
