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: bony interorbital 100% pupil diameter; fully scaled midline of nape of 12-14 scales; the second dorsal spine may reach posteriorly to middle of second dorsal fin; papillae in longitudinal row immediately below eye either single or with two papillae in vertical row (but not in vertical rows of 3-5 papillae at each position); pectoral-fin rays unbranched; usually a branched fifth pelvic-fin ray that is about half length of the fourth ray; a large diffuse dark blotch on the posterior caudal peduncle; colour pattern of a brownish body with most body scales having golden- to greenish-yellow (pale in preservative) centres is unique among species of Trimma (Ref. 115117).

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).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
