Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 9 - 11; Vertebrae: 37. Flexible, unbranched first ray and ten branched rays on its dorsal fin; dorsal fin situated relatively far posteriorly; pterygiophore of anterior dorsal fin ray articulating with neural spine of tenth vertebra; blade like neural spines of vertebrae five through nine extend dorsally, diverging at their dorsal ends to form a double row of ossifications just ventral to skin between supraoccipital and dorsal fin origin; a slender supraneural at posterior end of this v-shaped predorsal trough has attached muscles extending anteriorly between bifid neural spines to supraoccipital; maxillary barbel very long , reaching posteriorly beyond anal fin base. Distal portions of dorsal, adipose and anal fins, and most part of caudal fin almost unpigmented.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5020   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00741 (0.00335 - 0.01640), b=3.01 (2.82 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
