Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 13-14; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 12 - 14; Vertebrae: 26. This species is distinguished by the following characters: D VI, I, 13-14; outer gill rakers on first gill arch 0+9-10; no chin barbel; predorsal scales reaching anteriorly to transverse line through middle of operculum; no scales from pectoral-fin base; cephalic sensory-canal pores absent; pelvic-fin frenum absent (Ref. 75206).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

A true benthic species in the sloping sandy mud bottoms, often residing in the bottom sediment itself. In Suruga Bay, P. tansei was often found in beam trawl collections containing a lot of sandy mud sediments, probably due to the less than flat bottom configuration of the habitat (Ref. 75206).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.6250   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00418 - 0.01902), b=3.07 (2.89 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.3 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 (12 of 100) .
