Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 13; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 11 - 20. This species, belonging to the C. oxycephala group is distinguished by the following set of characters: D XIII,11; A II,11–12 (usually 11); pectoral-fin rays 14–15 (usually 15); gill rakers on first branchial arch 8-10 + 19-21 = 28-31; tubed lateral-line scales 12-16 (usually 14-16); preorbital + suborbital scales 2-11 (mean 7.6). Colour of small juveniles when alive pale green with yellowish suffusion and broad zone of turquoise blue covering the forehead and dorsal snout while adults are mainly pale yellow grading to pale gray ventrally with numerous small blue or greenish spots on head, body, and basal portion of dorsal, anal, and caudal fins (Ref. 119675).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804):  PD50 = No PD50 data   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.02344 (0.01144 - 0.04804), b=2.98 (2.80 - 3.16), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±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.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
