Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 14 - 16; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-12; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 8 - 10. Diagnosis: 20-24 rakers on lower limb of first arch; length of lower pharyngeal jaw < 43.5% of head length; 27-30 scales in lateral line; head length 33.6-39.5% of standard length; total dorsal rays (including spines) 24-27 (Ref. 81260). Color in life is silver-grey, darker on back, whitish below with a series of pink spots along flank, one to each scale; genital papilla small and leaf-shaped in male, truncate in female; tips of dorsal soft rays reaching vertical of 0.25 to 0.75 length of caudal, anal not quite so far; pelvic extremity reaching vent or nearly (Ref. 2).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Lacks marked sexual dichromatism when sexually active; forms temporary pair bonds (Ref. 81260).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01622 (0.00701 - 0.03755), b=3.02 (2.82 - 3.22), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.3   ±0.2 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 (27 of 100) .
