Kurzbeschreibung Morphologie | Morphometrie

This species is distinguished by the following characters: tail length 66.4%, head length 6.6%, and body depth at gill opening 1.7% of total length; the dorsal-fin origin is well in advance of pectoral-fin base; elongate pectoral fin; posterior nostril a hole above the upper lip; a broad, succulent-leaf shaped flap near the anterior nostril; pores are small but conspicuous, SO 1 + 4, IO 4 + 2, POM 5 + 2, ST 3; teeth are small and conical, biserial on anterior part of upper jaw, biserial on lower jaw, a series of 6 vomerine teeth; colouration light brown, with numerous dark brown lines on head and pigment spots on upper half of body and dorsal and anal fins whitish; vertebral formula 5/64/193 (Ref. 103840).

Biologie     Fachlexikon (Englisch) (z.B. epibenthic)

This species is seined on shallow sand bottom, at 0.5-1 m. Apparently very rare, or rarely encountered by divers or snorkelers, possibly also due to its cryptic burying habits (Ref. 103840).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.7   ±0.6 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Widerstandsfähigkeit (Ref. 120179):  hoch, Verdopplung der Population dauert weniger als 15 Monate. (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (27 of 100).
