Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 17-19; Anal soft rays: 12 - 13; Vertebrae: 36 - 37. Distinguished from its congeners by the following characters: supraocular and parietal spines absent; nuchal spine obscure; uppermost preopercular spine unbranched; no scales between dorsal scale row and lateral line scale row, and no scales below lateral line scale row; supraocular, parietal, and nuchal cirri present; five dark brown saddles dorsolaterally; 13 anal fin rays; 15 pectoral fin rays; vertebrae 12 + 24-25 = 36-37. Male holotype with a secondary sexual character, a unique ensiform flaps on the distal tips of the first dorsal fin (Ref. 58328).

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 (0.00293 - 0.01631), b=3.14 (2.93 - 3.35), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-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 (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (25 of 100) .
