Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 26. This species is distinguished from its congeners by the following combination of characters: D1 I,8; pectoral-fin rays 18-19; predorsal scales 8-12; longitudinal scales 29-31; vertebrae 11+15 = 26; predorsal squamation composed of large ctenoid scales, reaching anteriorly to near posterior margin of the eye; short transverse rows of sensory papillae 5-6 below eye; several short transverse rows of sensory papillae (a part of row c) between 2 longitudinal rows of sensory papillae on cheek; head with a dark brownish gray reticulation or reddish oblique lines except for its ventral surface; upper end of pectoral-fin base with a black spot, as large as pupil; midlateral body with a longitudinal series of alternating large and small black blotches; 2-4 irregular longitudinal rows of small skyblue spots on midlateral body when alive (Ref. 104791).

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=0.00490 (0.00199 - 0.01208), b=3.09 (2.87 - 3.31), 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 (22 of 100) .
