Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 7; Vertebrae: 29. Distinguished by the color pattern with a dark blotch beneath adipose fin not extending to anal fin and by the high number of anal fin proximal radials, 12, shaped as rod-like thin tubes, the last one bearing a laminar extension. Can be diagnosed by the following combination of characters: a pectoral fin spine with a bony point and bearing proportionally few serrations on posterior border of pectoral fin spine, eight to ten; seven pleural ribs and a proportionally short head width (67.8-74.3% in HL).

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):  3.3   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
