Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 7-8; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 7 - 8. Differs morphometrically from G. purpurea in having on average a shallower caudal peduncle, shorter mean distance from origin of pectoral fin to origin of pelvic fin and longer upper jaw. Differs from G. ditaenia in its shorter caudal peduncle and longer post-orbital mean lengths and an average of 57 vs. 68 scales in the lateral line.

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trofisk nivå (Ref. 69278):  2.5   ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliens (Ref. 120179):  Hög, lägsta populationsfördubblingstid mindre än 15 månader (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
