Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9 - 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 13-15; Anal soft rays: 8 - 12; Vertebrae: 31 - 36. This species is distinct from its congeners by the following characters: dorsal scale band from under the 4th-7th dorsal-fin spine to under penultimate or last dorsal-fin ray, not reaching onto caudal peduncle; naked axilla of pectorals; cirri on dorsal-fin spines absent; one common opening of the anterior terminal mandibular pore; no nasal cirri; no elongated dorsal-fin spines; absence of parietal spines (Ref. 75898).

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=0.00661 (0.00272 - 0.01607), b=3.17 (2.96 - 3.38), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (33 of 100) .
