Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species possess a longer body, smaller interorbital space (equal to that of the mouth width which is 0.78-0.82 times the pre-oral length); short caudal fin; differently-proportioned first dorsal fin (interdorsal space, 24.6% to 25.8% of TL); relatively short snout; prenarial length 0.64-0.69 times mouth width and 1.32-1.59 times eye length; denticles wide, tricuspidate, overlapping, and rhomboid; caudal 'bar' present at the fork of the caudal fin; dorsal caudal lobe wide, and a broad rounded tip (Ref. 120195).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00331 (0.00153 - 0.00716), b=3.09 (2.91 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.3   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  Very Low, minimum population doubling time more than 14 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):   (0 of 100) .
