Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 5.2 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 75138); 5.3 cm SL (female)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 9; Vertebrae: 26. This species is distinct from its congeners in having the following characters: second dorsal-fin rays I, 9-10 (almost always I, 9); anal-fin rays I, 9-10 (almost always I, 9); scaled cheek and pectoral-fin base; asymmetrical caudal fin, with fifth or sixth segmented ray slightly elongate and longest; head length (HL), 28.8-33.5% of SL; eye diameter 32.7-37.3% HL, 9.6-12.3% of SL; grayish body with about 7 narrow, transverse yellow bars (pale in preservation); absence of distinct black-and-white barred pattern on caudal fin (Ref. 75138).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

It has been suggested that some specimens were possibly captured from sandy or sandy-mud bottoms in the center and/or western parts of Tosa Bay at the depths of 30-100 m (Ref. 75138).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [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   ±0.3 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 (14 of 100) .
