Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species is distinguished from its congeners in having the following set of characters: membranes of dorsal-fin spines darkly pigmented (in specimens greater than 17 mm SL); spawning males with lower part of head and abdomen darkly pigmented; membranes of dorsal-fin spines black; membranes of pelvic-fin spine blue and white; pelvic-fin spine dark with lightly pigmented tip; anal-fin spine dark at base, blue and white distally; numerous small black dots on membranes between rays of dorsal and anal fins, resulting in an overall dark-grey coloration; no anteroventral branch of ectocoracoid (ectocoracoids not extending beneath junction of cleithra); no ascending branch on pelvic skeleton; modal number of dorsal-fin spines 10; presence of caudal peduncle keel (4-6 scutes), no lateral scutes on trunk absent; pelvic-fin spine with smooth lateral margins; posterior margin of caudal fin rounded (Ref. 86731).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5020   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00447 (0.00182 - 0.01097), b=3.07 (2.85 - 3.29), 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 vulnerability (10 of 100) .
