Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 1; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 9-10; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 13 - 14. Head much depressed, smooth above or finely striated on sides of elongate fontanelle; premaxillary band of teeth 5-6 times as long as broad, nearly as broad as the band of vomerine teeth; snout truncate (Ref. 2988). Snout projecting beyond lower jaw (Ref. 52162, Ref. 2988). Maxillary barbel 1.66-2 times head length, reaching pelvics (Ref. 52162), but not passing the base of the pelvics (Ref. 1884). Nasal barbel 1/5-1/3 of head length; inner mandibular barbel 0.33-0.4 times head length (Ref. 2988). Outer mandibular barbel 0.60-0.66 times head length (Ref. 52162, Ref. 2988). Occipital processus long and narrow, almost reaching the interneural (Ref. 52249). Last ray of dorsal fin above vertical of first ray of pelvics; dorsal spine smooth, feeble; adipose fin 4-5.5 times as long as deep, about twice as long as dorsal fin; caudal fin deeply forked, with pointed lobes (Ref. 2988). Upper lobe of caudal fin with short filament (Ref. 52249). Pectoral spine moderately strong, smooth, or very slightly serrated behind (Ref. 2988).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5005   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00759 (0.00343 - 0.01679), b=2.97 (2.79 - 3.15), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trofisk nivå (Ref. 69278):  3.8   ±0.9 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliens (Ref. 69278):  Hög, lägsta populationsfördubblingstid mindre än 15 månader (Assuming Fec>10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (45 of 100) .
