Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Vertebrae: 77 - 78. This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: anterior contour of the lower jaw rather pointed; posterior tip of the pelvic fin reaching anterior margin of the anus; anterior tip of the tooth patch on mesopterygoid in front of the tooth patch on the parasphenoid; 77-80 pored lateral line scales; 77-78 vertebrae; body elongated, slightly compressed; conical snout, inferior mouth; 2 nostrils on each side, anterior and posterior ones separated by membrane, posterior one larger than anterior one; protruding upper jaw, maxillary not reaching to anterior border of eye; small patches of villiform teeth on upper and lower jaw; well-developed adipose tissue covering eyes and around eyes, except the pupil; small and rudimentary gill rakers; all fins comprising only soft fin rays; large dorsal fin, located in the middle part of body; anal fin small, located in the posterior part of body; dorsal and anal fin rays gradually become short posteriorly, but last dorsal and anal fin rays slightly elongated; pectoral fin positioned at the ventral part of body; pelvic fin abdominal, its origin below the 12th dorsal fin ray; well-developed axillary scales at the upper base of pectoral and pelvic fins; deeply forked caudal fin, upper lobe slightly longer than lower lobe; body fully covered with cycloid scales, except head and fins (exposed); lateral and dorsal scales with 3 grooves inside, but the lateral scales on the outside exposed region are shorter than the dorsal scales; pored lateral line begins at the upper margin of operculum, extending beyond the caudal fin base in a straight line (Ref. 87083).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5007   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01380 (0.00557 - 0.03419), b=3.04 (2.83 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.2 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) .
