Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 5-7; Anal soft rays: 4 - 5. Distinguishing characteristics: esca with tapering, internally pigmented, anterior appendage, becoming proportionally longer with growth, and usually bearing 2 short, unpigmented filaments on anterior margin near distal tip; unpaired, unpigmented filamentous medial escal appendage normally consisting of numerous branched filaments, flanked on each side by a similar filamentous medial appendage; terminal escal papilla truncated, sometimes with distal spot of dark pigment; posterior escal appendage is laterally compressed and crescent-shaped, sometimes pigmented on distal margin; unpigmented filamentous lateral escal appendage on each side; absence of anterolateral escal appendages; epibrachial I bearing 1-5 teeth; pharyngobranchial II toothed; upper jaw with 29-180 teeth, lower jaw with 53-160 teeth; vomer with 4-10 teeth (Ref. 86949).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01995 (0.00906 - 0.04395), b=3.01 (2.83 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.9   ±0.7 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (29 of 100) .
