Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 19 - 22; Dorsal soft rays (total): 50-57; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 47 - 54; Vertebrae: 74 - 76. Belongs to the member of the Macrognathus aculeatus group but distinguished from all other species of the this group by the following combination of characters: 15-17 rostral tooth plates; 19-22 dorsal-fin spines; and large (eye size) black blotches along dorsal fin. Differs from its other Indian congeners of the Macrognathus aculeatus group as follows: from Macrognathus aral, Macrognathus pentophthalmos and Macrognathus morehensis by the presence of dorsal fin blotches (vs. white rimmed dorsal fin ocelli), from Macrognathus aral and Macrognathus pentophthalmos by having 15-17 rostral tooth plates (vs. 19-27); and also from Macrognathus pentophthalmos and Macrognathus morehensis by having 19-22 dorsal-fin spines (vs. 11-16) and from Macrognathus morehensis by having 15-17 rostral plates (vs. 8-11) (Ref. 83418).

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=0.00295 (0.00132 - 0.00659), 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):  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 (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (23 of 100) .
