Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 8. This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: D VI + I,9 (second dorsal spine 1.3-1.7 in head length); A II,8; pectoral fin rays 11-12 (rarely 13); 1½ scales between lateral line and first dorsal-fin base; gill-rakers 4-5 + 12-15, developed rakers 2 + 9-12; ceratobranchial rakers 8-9; smooth preopercle ridge; edge of posterior preopercle serrated, the angle and ventral part crenulated and membranous; anterior nostril closer to upper lip than to posterior nostril; skin flap forming dorsal edge of first supraorbital pore ending laterally with a small notch under or slightly before medial margin of anterior nostril, but not reaching base of nostril’s tube; caudal-peduncle depth 2.0-2.9 in its length (Ref. 50837).

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=0.01047 (0.00452 - 0.02424), b=3.10 (2.92 - 3.28), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
