Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 85-97; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 71 - 81; Vertebrae: 40 - 42. Pelvic fin on ocular side slightly elongate, extending to near the tip of the isthmus, the distance between the tip of the isthmus and the insertion of the pelvic fine subequal to the length of the pelvic fin base. Second ray of the pelvic fin on ocular side opposite to the 1st on the blind side. In male, the 12th to 18th dorsal rays and the 1st to 8th anal rays greatly elongated into filaments (Ref. 559). Soft ray count of pectoral fin refers to that on ocular side.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00436 - 0.02294), b=3.02 (2.82 - 3.22), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.4 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 (30 of 100) .
