Morphology | Morphometrics
(total): 10-13. Mid-lateral series of black blotches in anterior part of body, often fused to form a complete black mid-lateral stripe; conspicuous black blotch at caudal base; lips with a single row of large papillae (Ref. 43281). Differs from Traccatichthys pulcher by the absence of the distinct black submarginal streaks on dorsal and caudal fins and the presence of a dark brown lateral stripe, with 12-23 small chevron shaped marked (Ref. 40772).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5625 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00851 (0.00383 - 0.01892), b=2.93 (2.74 - 3.12), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 2.7 ±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 to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
