Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-9; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8 - 9. This small species, largest 1.80 cm SL, has the following characteristics: light colored with a depressed head (width 1.4-1.8 into head length and always wider than deep); with a bilobed tongue; pelvic-fin frenum greatly reduced, flat and not raised and turned back (outer margins about one-third pelvic spine length, shorter in center and easily torn), and the pelvic spines not thickened; terminal mouth; chin with a small, slightly curved mental frenum, and no barbels present on underside of head; tips of upper pectoral-fin rays not free; cheeks without prominent vertical fleshy flaps that bear papillae; dorsal-fin origin behind pectoral-fin base; no spines on preopercle; dorsal-fin spines thin and flexible; no dermal crest anterior to first dorsal fin; body scaled forward to pectoral fin; first gill slit open (Ref. 58271).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00414 - 0.01920), b=3.08 (2.91 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.3 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 (10 of 100) .
