Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 35. Distinguished from other species of the genus by the following combination of characters: short snout (snout length 43-48% HL); principal rays in the upper caudal-fin lobe 10; absence of a dark irregular vertical bar across the distal edge of the caudal fin; absence of a broad swath of melanophores across the anterior half of the dorsal fin; presence of a large dark blotch at the base of each caudal fin lobe; and presence of an irregular vertical bar across the center of the caudal fin. Can be further diagnosed from all congeners by the following combination of characters: 2 branchiostegal rays; ventral surface between paired fins with triangular scale-less patch; presence of a large postepiphysial fontanelle; branched dorsal-fin rays 9; unbranched pectoral-fin rays 5; caudal-fin rays 10+9; lateral-line scales 32-34; lateral sides of body marked with 5-7 indistinct round to squarish dark blotches, arranged in a longitudinal row; caudal fin with a dark, irregular vertical bar across its center (Ref. 85329).

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=0.00427 (0.00182 - 0.01001), b=3.16 (2.95 - 3.37), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
