Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 2. Snout long, 43-49% of HL, anterolateral margin not completely supported by bone; characteristic scales overlap anterolaterally onto ventral snout surface; orbit diameter 22-25% of HL, 1.8-2.2 times into snout length; upper jaw 24-27% of HL; chin barbel short, about equal to length of first gill slit; subopercle lacking a prolonged narrow flap. Light organ extends from behind isthmus to front of anus. Underside of head naked; nasal fossa naked; body scales thin, spinules short, fine, aligned in close parallel rows. Conspicuous body markings consisting of blotches, spots and occasional ring on dorsum, becoming a narrow dorsal stripe to end of tail; belly between periproct and pelvic fin bases lacking melanophores; maxillary ramus immaculate (rarely with 2-3 melanophores). First dorsal fin with membrane between second spinous ray and first segmented ray black; anterior end of anal fin blackish distally. Pyloric caeca 8-11, usually 10-11; P i14-i15, rarely i16.

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=0.00302 (0.00129 - 0.00709), b=3.12 (2.93 - 3.31), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (35 of 100) .
