Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Distinguished from all congeners of Acanthopagrus by the following combination: scale rows between fifth dorsal-fin spine base and lateral line 5½; front edge of dorsal scaly area on head forming an obtuse angle pointing anteriorly; pored lateral-line scales 45 or 46; second anal-fin spine (2AS) slender, and subequal to third anal-fin spine (3AS), ratio of 2AS/3AS = 1.01–1.06; ventral edge of first two infraorbitals straight; no scales on preopercular flange; wide black margin on dorsal and caudal fins, and pelvic- and analfin membrane black; molariform teeth poorly developed in both jaws (Ref. 83673).

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=0.01288 (0.00617 - 0.02688), b=3.03 (2.86 - 3.20), 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 (30 of 100) .
