Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 11;
Vertebrae: 26. This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: D VI-I,11; A I,11; pectoral-fin rays 15; scales in longitudinal series 51-6; no les o cheek, opercle, predorsal, prepelvic, and pectoral-fin base; scales weakly ctenoid, cycloid on anterodorsal part of body and belly; gill opening extending slightly forward of level of posterior margin of preopercle; dorsal fin without elongate spines, the longest 1.9-2.8 in HL; caudal fin is long and pointed, 2.1-2.2 in SL; reduced pattern of cephalic sensory-canal pores consisting of only B’, C, D, E, F and G pores (i.e. no preopercular pores M’, N, and O’ and no pores K’ and L’ above the operculum); gill rakers are poorly developed, 0 + 4-5 (Ref. 119393).
Found on a flat muddy bottom in a sheltered bay with a mangrove shoreline. It is presumed to live in burrows and, like other members of the genus, is associated with snapping shrimps of the genus Alpheus Ref. 119393).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= No PD50 data [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00575 (0.00261 - 0.01268), b=3.09 (2.91 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.1 ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
