Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 62-63; Anal soft rays: 43 - 44; Vertebrae: 66 - 68. This species is distinguished by the following characters: thin and elongated body, its depth 10.2-14.1 (12.9) times in SL; small head, 6.6-8.0 (7.2) times in SL; small pectoral and caudal fins, 2.5-4.0 (3.0) and 1.9-2.7 (2.2) times HL, respectively; occipital commissure with 3 pores almost at the straight line; no pores near crest base and no medial tubule; postorbital canal usually with 6 pores (usually pore po2 is absent); preopercular canal with 4 pores; skinny crest on head with a smooth upper profile - in females, it is highest in the middle, while in males, it is highest near the posterior margin; distance between the anterior margin of medial pore of OC and origin of D is large, 0..5-9 (0.7) times in horizontal orbit diameter; scales present behind 2nd-8th ray of anal fin; D 62-63. P 7-9. V. 66-68; 13-16 spines of dorsal fin are thin and bending, at its end, there is only one shortened spine; anal fin begins under the 19th-21st ray of dorsal fin, its last ray is connected by a membrane with caudal fin 75-90 (85.4)% of its length; caudal fin with 8-11 branched rays; no branched rays on epural3; preural vertebrae with wide neural processes 11-18, and those with hemapophyseal plate 9-12; vertebrae with hemapophyseal plate, neural processes are noticeably shorter than hemal ones; top of head covered with small brown spots (Ref. 91064).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found on rocky littoral formed of slightly flattened stones, 30-60 cm, with narrow slits that are partially filled with sand, gravel ad small stones. Stomachs contain small gastropods (Ref. 91064).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.8   ±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 vulnerability (24 of 100) .
