Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 12.8 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 116921)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 13-15; Anal soft rays: 13 - 16; Vertebrae: 42. Anchoviella sanfranciscana is diagnosed from its congeners by the following characteristics: wide silver lateral band present, with a well-defined dark brown and yellow lateral band above - its total width is 1.5 to 2 times wider than the ocular diameter, (vs. width is less than 1 time in other congeners); distance from tip of dorsal fin to start of anal fin is similar in size as the dorsal fin (vs. distance is smaller in other congeners, except A. perfasciata); and 29-35 gill rakers in lower branch of the first branchial arch (vs. maximum is 27 in other congeners, except for A. cayennensis) (Ref. 116921).

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=0.00562 (0.00253 - 0.01250), b=3.19 (3.01 - 3.37), in cm Total Length, 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 (17 of 100) .
