Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species is distinguished by the combination of its small gill opening (8.8 in HL), lack of a pelvic-fin rudiment, narrow interorbital space (8.8 in HL), presence of only 2 cephalic pores in the lateral line system, and the origin of the dorsal-fin fold posteriorly placed (Ref. 76765).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs in shallow coastal waters (Ref. 76765).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5005   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00102 (0.00046 - 0.00225), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±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 (24 of 100) .
