Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 7 - 8. Body with small spots; sides with 4-5 groups of black spots, last spot on caudal peduncle often paired without a vertical bar at caudal base; median fins spotted; paired fins pale (Ref. 2798). Large males with dusky 1st dorsal, anal and pelvic fins (Ref. 2798); characterized further by second dorsal spine forming elongate, threadlike filament; pelvic fins united medially; presence of pelvic frenum; rounded caudal fin; longitudinal scale series 27; ctenoid scales except cycloid on breast and pectoral fin base; predorsal scales 3, scale absent on remainder of head; depth of body 6.1 in SL (Ref. 90102).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Usually in small groups (Ref. 90102). Found over sandy and muddy bottoms, often in weedy areas of intertidal zone; also in mangroves, estuaries, lagoons and rivers (Ref. 4343).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5020   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00549 - 0.01823), b=3.11 (2.96 - 3.26), based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.4 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 (18 of 100) .
