Pectoral fins short, not reaching to level of anus. Pelvic fins moderately long, reaching to level of anus. Dorsal fin spines elongate, interspinous membrane deeply incised. Upper lobe of caudal fin pointed and slightly longer than lower. A line drawn up from the posterior edge of suborbital reaching the dorsal profile at or just before origin of dorsal fin.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Occurs on sand or mud bottoms and feeds on fish, crustaceans, mollusks and polychaetes. Usually in small groups; flighty during the day (Ref. 48635). Trawled in commercial quantities in the Straits of Malacca and off the Terengganu coast, South China Sea.

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Two prolonged spawning seasons are likely in the South China Sea off the Trengganu coast: from November to February, and another starting in May or June. Also Ref. 103751.

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=0.01202 (0.00642 - 0.02251), b=2.98 (2.82 - 3.14), based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.7   ±0.3 se; Based on diet studies.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (tm=1).
Prior r = 1.4, 2 SD range = 0.67 - 2.93, log(r) = 0.34, SD log(r) = 0.37, Based on: 2 M, 6 K, 1 tgen, records
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (27 of 100) .
