Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal soft rays: 6. Odontodes at tip of snout almost as long as wide, spatulate and with tip round or heart-shaped; first unbranched ray of pectoral fin with long and soft portion equivalent to one fourth to more than half length of hard part; arrector fossae aperture on each side of scapular bridge very wide, equivalent to about one fourth of body width; large naked area around anus; anterior dorsal profile strongly elevated from snout tip to median interorbital region, almost straight to dorsal-fin insertion, and almost parallel to longitudinal body axis; interorbital distance narrow, eye diameter 0.9-1.4 times in interorbital distance (Ref. 47353).

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=0.00550 (0.00225 - 0.01343), b=3.11 (2.90 - 3.32), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.0   ±0.1 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
