Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 10. Differs from its congeners in Europe by having the following characters: 5 scales between anus and anal origin; breast scaled forward until in front of pectorals; 37-39 + 2-3 scales on lateral line; 3½ -4 scale rows between lateral line and pelvic origin; 12-16 (usually 14) scale rows around caudal peduncle; interorbital area flat; head length 26-30% SL; eye diameter 1.2-1.7 times in interorbital distance; caudal peduncle depth 1.5-2.0 times in its length; and midlateral blotches not conspicuous, not contrasted and with fussy margins (Ref. 59043).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

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=0.00692 (0.00290 - 0.01653), b=3.16 (2.98 - 3.34), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.5 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 to moderate vulnerability (28 of 100) .
