Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 6; Dorsal soft rays (total): 15-16; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 15. This species differs from its congeners by the following characters: terminal mouth oblique; absence of a large blotch on pectoral-fin base; trunk with a large blotch anterodorsally beneath pectoral fin and a series of small midlateral spots, but no series of large midlateral blotches with vertical extensions; D2 and A each with 15 elements; broadly confluent dorsal fins; small cycloid scales completely covering trunk and nape, with 70 or more in a lateral series; upper jaw with one complete row of teeth in most specimens, but 2 or 3 appearing in larger individuals; first gill arch with 8 thin rakers on ceratobranchial, 6 on epibranchial (Ref. 55435).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00724 (0.00319 - 0.01647), b=3.00 (2.81 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (32 of 100) .
