Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 36. Preoperculomandibular sensory canal is without connection to infraorbital canal (Ref. 57693). Pelvic-fin origin is 3-5 scales in front of dorsal-fin origin; pelvic fins are short, not reaching to anus (Ref. 57693). Lateral line is incomplete, reaching to vertical of tip of pectoral fin or to vertical of anal-fin base, perforating 7-30 scales (Ref. 57693). It has 46-52 + 2-3 scales in lateral series (Ref. 57693). There is no scaled keel between posterior pelvic-fin base and anus (Ref. 57693). A faint and diffuse epidermal black stripe is present from eye to caudal-fin base in live and preserved individuals (Ref. 57693).

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=0.00891 (0.00387 - 0.02054), b=3.06 (2.85 - 3.27), 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. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (17 of 100) .
