Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This moderate-sized species is distinguished by the following characters: slender body has soft-velvety skin, where dermal denticles on side and upper body are tricuspidate; coloration of body uniformly plain medium brown; head slightly depressed; snout is relatively short; mouth curved, the upper and lower labial furrows are conspicuous with the uppers and lowers of equal lengths; roof of mouth blackish with darker pores; teeth are mainly tricuspidate with greatly elongate median cusps, about 50 rows in both jaws; origin of the first dorsal fin is posterior to the insertion of the pelvic fins, pre-first dorsal fin is slightly posterior of body mid-length; origin of the second dorsal fin is posterior to mid-length of anal fin base; pelvic fins origin and vent are slightly posterior to midlength; second dorsal fin is slightly larger than first; caudal peduncle is relatively short, pronounced caudal crests on upper and lower anterior caudal fin margins has enlarged denticles; vertebral counts monospondylous centra 42, precaudal centra 90 (Ref. 119153).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5010   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01122 (0.00514 - 0.02450), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.0   ±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 (42 of 100) .
