Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 12; Vertebrae: 25. This species is distinguished by the following: D IX, 12; A III, 12; pectoral rays 13; lateral-line scales 75-78; gill rakers 5-6 + 12-14; body depth 3.6-4.35 in SL; dorsal fin of terminal male not elevated anteriorly; truncate to slightly emarginate caudal fin; fin length 1.45-1.65 in HL; color of initial phase gray-brown with a dark brown stripe from behind eye, twice as broad as orbit, narrowing to less than orbit diameter anteriorly on caudal peduncle, then expanding to a large triangle twice orbit diameter in height on base of caudal fin; upper and lower edges of caudal fin broadly dusky; remaining fins translucent; terminal male more melanistic, the dark stripe obscure, the caudal lobes as dark as base of fin; dorsal fin dark brown with narrow pale margin, grading to dusky on about posterior fourth of fin (Ref. 75622).

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=0.01072 (0.00516 - 0.02226), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (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 (24 of 100) .
