Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 2; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10. This species is distinguished by the following characters: body much less slender than typical for the genus, with very thin head bones; pelvic fin rays 12-13; pectoral fin rays 15-16; gill rakers 18-20; no barbel; orbit 21% HL; blunt snout with high frontal ridge, barely protruding, short, 23% HL; ventral striae extending about ? distance from pelvic fin bases to periproct region; infraorbital canal is wider than other canal systems; very small preopercular supporter; otolith compressed (otolith length to height (OL:OH) is 0.8; colliculi separated and small; small pseudocolliculum, total colliculum length to pseudocolliculum length (TCL:PCL) is 1.8 (Ref. 98298).

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=0.00219 (0.00097 - 0.00495), b=3.17 (2.98 - 3.36), 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 (24 of 100) .
