Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Anal soft rays: 14 - 20; Vertebrae: 40 - 42. Can be diagnosed by a combination of the following characters: ventral keel well-defined, sharp, scaleless or only slightly scaled; snout short, slightly pointed; mouth terminal with the tip of the mouth cleft on a level with the upper half of the pupil; eye large with orbit width about equal to interorbital width; 47-51 lateral-line scales to posterior margin of hypurals (47-57 total lateral-line scales); 2.5-4.2 pharyngeal teeth; dorsal-fin usually with 8½ branched rays; anal fin usually with 13-16½ branched rays; 40-42, usually 41, total vertebrae; caudal vertebral region longer than abdominal region (most frequent vertebral formulae 20+21, 20+22 and 19+21); and usually 13 or 14 predorsal vertebrae (Ref. 91777).

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=0.00832 (0.00372 - 0.01857), b=3.06 (2.87 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±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 vulnerability (24 of 100) .
