Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Anal soft rays: 26 - 31; Vertebrae: 44 - 46. Differs from other species by the following characters: short upper maxilla, its posterior margin not reaching the lower maxilla joint (vs. upper maxilla longer, its posterior margin reaching to or a little past of mandible joint in Lycengraulis grossidens); 26 to 31 anal-fin rays and 44 to 46 vertebrae (vs. 21 to 23 anal-fin rays and 42 vertebrae in L. poeyi); anal-fin origin at vertical through base of second to fifth dorsal-fin ray and 17-21 gill rakers on the lower branch of first gill arch ( vs. anal-fin origin at vertical through base of sixth to 10th dorsal-fin ray and 12-15 gill rakers on the lower branch of first gill arch in L. batesii).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00525 (0.00244 - 0.01130), b=3.13 (2.95 - 3.31), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.7   ±0.6 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 (24 of 100) .
