Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Distinguished by the following characters: mouth moderate; reaching to below anterior margin of eye; operculum with large patch of small mostly cycloid scales (10-20 scales) in 2 or 3 rows; pectoral base covered with small cycloid scales in adult, partly scaled to naked in specimens below 40 mm SL ; first dorsal fin usually with small black spot posteriorly; second dorsal rays usually I,9; pectoral rays 18-22; predorsal scale count 18-24; no extra lateral canal pores above operculum; papilla line 6 absent; papilla lines composed of single row of papillae; body with a series of large spots on midside, each covering 2-3 scales in longitudinal direction on midside and one row above and one row below midside scales (Ref. 90210).

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   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (36 of 100) .
