Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 74-77; Anal soft rays: 56 - 57; Vertebrae: 37 - 38. Diagnosis: Dorsal rays 74-77; anal rays 56-57; most dorsal and anal rays double branched. Lateral-line scales 69-73. including 6-7 anterior to a vertical at upper end of gill opening. Vertebrae 37-38; dorsal pterygiophores anterior to fourth neural spine 12. Body depth 2.45-2.6 in SL; head length (HL) 3.85-3.95 in SL; eye diameter 4.55-4.9 in HL; upper eye overlapping a anterior two-thirds to three-fourths of lower eye; interorbital space narrow, the vertical distance between eyes about one-fourth to one-sixth eye diameter. Caudal peduncle absent. Short fleshy cirri on ventral edge of head. Lateral line aligned with ventral part of upper eye. Longest dorsal ray 1.55-1.7 in HL; caudal fin rounded, 4.4-4.55 in SL in length; pelvic fins 2.4-2.7 in HL, the tip of longest ray reaching base of second or third anal ray. Body color of ocular side in alcohol pale yellowish brown with 3 rows of large irregular blackish blotches, one dorsal, one ventral, and one midlateral; a few small dark spots on fin rays; blind side pale yellowish, the dark spots on rays faint (Ref. 57560).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 26.9 - 29, mean 27.8 (based on 99 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01122 (0.00521 - 0.02417), b=3.07 (2.88 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.5 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 (10 of 100) .
