Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 10. This species is distinguished by the following characters: D VI + I,10, where dorsal spines are thin and flexible, the third occasionally with long filamentous tip, reaching as far as sixth or seventh segmented ray of second dorsal fin when adpressed; A I,10; pectoral-fin rays 18-19 (rarely 18); lanceolate caudal fin, about equal to head length or slightly longer; scales in longitudinal scales 27-28, 9 transverse-scales; 8-9 predorsal-scales; finely ctenoid scales cover the body, becoming cycloid on breast (prepelvic), the pectoral-fin base, nape, and head; opercle and cheek are fully scaled; anterior extent of gill opening is below middle of opercle; transverse pattern of cheek papillae; single transverse row of papillae on chin; when alive, colour brown, grading to tan ventrally with scattered dark-edged, orange spots midlaterally on the side of the body, midlateral row of four, large squarish black spots from behind pectoral fin to caudal-fin base, pair of orange-brown stripes across cheek, and brown spotting on dorsal and caudal fins (Ref. 101679).

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=0.00661 (0.00300 - 0.01455), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±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 (10 of 100) .
