Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 90; Vertebre: 94. Distinguished from other species with the following characters: upper head profile convex; posterior confluence of frontal ridges not elevated at the nape, resulting in the absence of the sagittal crest; eye 4.5 times in HL; lower hind margin of opercle broadly rounded; pelvic fins reduced to scalelike structure with 2 soft rays on posterior process of basipterygium, its origin below 9th dorsal-fin element; first anal spine single, oval, scalelike, and originating a short distance behind vent (opposite the 34th dorsal-fin soft ray), anterior anal-fin soft rays minute and embedded, barely penetrating skin and not visible externally, while posterior fin supporting rays enlarged and visible externally; anal-fin rays 15, externally visible; dorsal-fin elements 90, 1st spine elongate, sword-shaped, and finely ribbed; pectoral fin rays 12, with shorter anterior and longer posterior rays extending above the lateral line; first gill arch with upper gill rakers 9; vent at about 50% TL; total vertebrae 94; horizontal distance between posterior margin of eye and origin of first dorsal-fin spine short (8.5% HL); preanal length (PL) 49% TL; HL 27.5% PL; upper jaw length 9.5% PL; predorsal length 21% PL (Ref. 58273).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00275 (0.00105 - 0.00724), b=3.06 (2.83 - 3.29), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  4.4   ±0.7 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Basso, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione 4.5 - 14 anni (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High vulnerability (60 of 100) .
