Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

It differs from other Sillago species; the 1st dorsal fin S. sinica sp. nov. has X or XI (not to XII); scales above lateral line 7 or 8; gill rakers 2-4+6-8; vertebra: abdominal 13-17 (mostly 15), modified 0-4 (mostly 2), caudal 19-24 (mostly 21), and total 37-39 (mostly 38). We could also see apparent differences among pictures of otoliths of the 6 Sillago species with S. sinica sp. nov. having a kernel-shaped otolith with a wavy edge. Genetic analysis also showed interspecific differentiation among the 6 Sillago species (Ref. 86540).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

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=0.00407 (0.00180 - 0.00922), b=3.15 (2.95 - 3.35), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±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 (15 of 100) .
