Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This small species has a wedge-shaped disc, is moderately elongate and with a narrow, triangular snout; anterior nasal flaps extending well across internasal space and are barely separated; dorsal surface with dense pattern of white ocelli; disc is rather thin, its length 1.3-1.4 times its width; anterior margins undulate, moderately concave before snout tip; outer corner of pectoral fins broadly rounded; snout angle ca. 64°; large eye, much larger than spiracles, orbit length 3.1-3.7 in preorbital length, 1.1-1.4 in interorbital space; rostral ridges well separated at the base; spiracle with 2 fleshy folds, inner fold rudimentary; rather large nostrils, oblique, length 1.2-1.3 times internasal space, anterior nasal flaps barely separated; velvety skin, entirely covered with minute denticles, no thorns nor thornlets, some barely enlarged denticles on preorbit and in median row between nape and first dorsal fin; tail 1.3-1.4 times longer than disc; tall dorsal fins widely spaced, interspace 2.7-3.2 times base length of first dorsal fin; apices angular to narrowly rounded; pectoral fin radials 67-72; total vertebral centra 185-188 (Ref. 114953).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5039   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±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 (28 of 100) .
