Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 14-15; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 7; Vertebrae: 26. Diagnosis: This species is distinguished by the following characters: soft dorsal-fin rays 14 (14-15, mostly 14); pectoral-fin rays 15 (14-15, mostly 15), branched or double-branched except the uppermost; lateral line is complete with 29 tubed scales; oblique rows of scales on cheek 8 (7-8); scales on interorbit reaching almost to posterior nostril; no scales on maxilla and ventral aspects of head; posterior preopercular margin serrate, the ventral margin is smooth, usually without conspicuous spines; margins of subopercle and interopercle smooth; gill rakers 5 + 12 (4-5 + 11-13); body depth 3.0 (2.7-3.1) in SL; third dorsal spine longest, 1.9 (1.9-2.3) in head; preserved colour pale with nine or 10 oblique dark bars, a faint spot anteriorly on the ventral and the dorsal half of the caudal fin (Ref. 57792).

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=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.5 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) .
