Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8 - 9; Vertebrae: 26.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Usually found in mangroves, at sites not far from the sea; collected by beam trawl in shallow water or by hand during low tide on mud-banks, in tiny puddles, on exposed mud surface or partly buried in mud. One specimen in the Gulf of Carpentaria was found alive among the bases of dead mangrove Bruguiera exaristata on quite dry, firm mud (Ref. 80545).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00692 (0.00306 - 0.01566), b=3.01 (2.82 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-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 (10 of 100) .
