Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 49-50; Anal soft rays: 43 - 44; Vertebrae: 58 - 59. This species is distinguished by the following characters: vertebrae 58-59; pectoral fin rays 16; pyloric caeca 6-10; prominent occipital hump; mouth angle about 60°; tiny and slender premaxillary teeth, sharp canines with slight shoulders, in a narrow band of about 40 oblique rows of up to 7 teeth each; short gill opening, above pectoral and in front of 1-2 rays, its length less than 1/5 HL; opercle a broad sword-like blade extending ventrally with a shallow curve posteriorly, its tip a sharp spine reaching posterior to pectoral fin base; symphyseal pores without raised rim, small, widely separated, fragile; absent coronal pore; rays of upper and lower pectoral fin lobes free for a significant proportion of their length; abdominal cavity length behind pectoral symphysis about 20% SL, almost equal to HL (Ref. 92437).

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=0.00468 (0.00207 - 0.01059), b=3.19 (2.99 - 3.39), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.6 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 (15 of 100) .
