Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 17-20; Raggi anali molli: 18 - 21; Vertebre: 52 - 54. Head relatively short, <39.5-0.025% SL. Snout short (22-28%HL); broadly triangular anteriorly when viewed from above. Orbit diameter about 1/5 to 1/4 HL, along the whole upper edge and on the separate elongate-shaped part of the lower-posterior part of the orbit are accumulation s of whitish connective tissue. Interorbital space very wide, ca. 17-30% HL, flat, narrows very slightly at the middle of the orbit. Upper jaw extends to below the center of the orbit. Branchiostegal rays 8-9. Transverse rows of scales above lateral line 60-65, 30-35 predorsal. Gill rakers' length less than gill lamellae length, and completely free at the base. Opercle has a projection at the lower anterior corner; subopercle has a wide posterior edge usually with no separate processes. Anus not shifted forward from the origin of the anal fin. Pyloric caeca 12-18 (Ref. 41471).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 2.2 - 4, mean 2.6 °C (based on 75 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00347 (0.00164 - 0.00733), b=3.19 (3.00 - 3.38), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.2 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Medio, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione 1.4 - 4.4 anni (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (46 of 100) .
