Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 8. Can be distinguished by the following combination of characters: 17-29 bars on body, bars in front of dorsal-fin origin conspicuously thinner than those behind, some of which split vertically into two (or more) in their course from back to sides, may join with adjacent bars; males with a prominent suborbital flap; middle of caudal fin with 2-3 v-shaped rows of spots; apexes pointing towards caudal base; basal caudal black bar extending from dorsal to ventral extremities of caudal base; caudal fin with 15 branched rays (Ref. 55394).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00631 (0.00268 - 0.01487), b=3.02 (2.85 - 3.19), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.0 ±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 (20 of 100) .
