Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11-12; Anal soft rays: 16 - 18; Vertebrae: 41 - 42. This species can be diagnosed from all congeners in Turkey and adjacent waters by the following combination of characters (none unique to the species): a well developed and generally scaleless ventral keel between pelvic and anal fins; body depth at dorsal-fin origin 31-36% SL; caudal-peduncle depth 12-13% SL and 1.5-1.7 times in SL; predorsal length 56-60% SL; dorsal-fin origin approximately vertical to mid-point pelvic-anal distance; mouth terminal, the tip of mouth cleft between level of middle of pupil and lower margin of pupil; snout with slightly pointed tip; 37-43 + 1-2 scales on lateral line, 9-10 scale rows between lateral-line and dorsal-fin origin, 4-5 scale rows between lateral-line and anal fin origin; anal fin with 13½-15½ branched rays; pharyngeal teeth 4.2-2.5, markedly hooked; total vertebrae 41-42 with mode of 41, comprising 20-21 with mode of 21 abdominal and 20-21 with mode of 20 caudal vertebrae; dark grey stripe slightly distinct in anterior part of body but clearly distinct in posterior part of body, its width greater than eye diameter; pigmentation of lateral-line distinct along lateral-line in anterior part of body but slightly distinct in posterior part of body (Ref. 94737).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

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 (18 of 100) .
