Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 5-7; Anal soft rays: 4 - 6. Characterized by having escal morphology: escal bulb with small rounded, anteriorly to anteroventrally directed papilla on anterior midline and slightly larger dorsally to anterodorsally directed papilla on dorsal midline; simple and unpigmented papillae in specimens less than 98 mm, bifurcated papillae, forming shallow medial area that is darkly pigmented in specimens 98mm and larger; most specimens with 2 small unpigmented papillae placed bilaterally on dorsal surface of escal bulb near base of posterior escal appendage; compressed posterior appendage crescent shaped and approximately as long as escal bulb; darkly pigmented swollen basal part of posterior appendage in specimens 98mm and larger; presence of filaments on posterior appendage, pigmented in 159-mm specimens; teeth in lower jaw 31-286; teeth on vomer 4-10 (Ref. 86949).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 2 - 4.5, mean 3.5 (based on 627 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±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 (21 of 100) .
