Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 36 - 41;
Vertebrae: 36. This species is distinguished from its congeners by the following set of characters: D 37-41; A 36-41; anterior rays of dorsal and anal fins have distinct falcate lobes, preceded by 5-10 small blade-like spines embedded in skin and not obvious in larger specimens; anterior lobe of anal fin is greatly extended, reaching behind the peduncle; first anal fin ray originate below 5 th-6 th dorsal fin ray; pectoral fins are extremely long (mean 44.8% of SL); caudal fin deeply forked, with the lower lobe usually longer than the upper one; gill rakers vestigial with 7-10 minute tubercular-like spinules; total vertebrae 36, precaudal 15 and caudal vertebrae 21 (Ref. 95516).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804
= No PD50 data [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01585 (0.00707 - 0.03555), b=3.00 (2.81 - 3.19), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.4 ±0.2 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 to moderate vulnerability (30 of 100).
