Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 1; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-9; Anal soft rays: 11. Head smooth above; snout broadly rounded; band of premaxillary teeth 6 times as long as broad, close to and nearly as broad as the crescentic band of vomerine teeth; maxillary barbel 2.25 times head length, reaching beyond pelvic fins; nasal barbel 0.4 times head length; inner mandibulary barbel 0.43 times head length; outer mandibulary barbel 0.86 times head length; occipital processus narrow and short, widely separated from the first interneural bone; longest branched ray of dorsal fin 0.71 times head length; dorsal spine very weak; adipose fin 4 times longer than high, much longer than the base of the dorsal fin; caudal fin deeply forked, both lobes with long filaments; pectoral spine weak with the outer half articulated (Ref. 52141). Coloration: brown above with irregularly scattered small black dots which are most numerous on the caudal and adipose fin, but are also seen on the back and sides; no dots below lateral line; whitish below (Ref. 52141).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5005   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01047 (0.00406 - 0.02701), b=2.97 (2.74 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.7   ±0.9 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Assuming Fec>10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (40 of 100) .
