Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7; Anal spines: 2-3; Anal soft rays: 5 - 6; Vertebrae: 39 - 42. Distinguished from its congeners in having skin densely covered with wart-like epidermal tubercles developed in both sexes at all the ontogenetic stages; 4 pectoral bony radials of distinct shape; anterior and posterior nares closely spaced; occipital canal interrupted, with 2+2 pores; caudal peduncle laterally compressed and shorter than the head; well-developed free air-bladder portion in the abdominal cavity; intestine long and spirally coiled; anterior fontanelle in the skull; 3 basibranchials and 2 pairs of infrapharyngobranchials in the branchial apparatus; epural considerably shortened, the pads of the breeding tubercles are weakly-developed in the preorbital region of the mature males (Ref. 57977).

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=0.00692 (0.00324 - 0.01477), b=3.00 (2.83 - 3.17), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±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 (18 of 100) .
