Dorsal spines (total): 2 - 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7-9; Anal spines: 2-3; Anal soft rays: 7 - 8. Distinguished from all its congeners by the following combination of characters: 7 or 8 branched rays in the dorsal fin; 8 branched rays in the anal fin; 2 rows of pharyngeal teeth on both sides with 2 and 5 teeth, respectively; low caudal peduncle; 10 gill rakers; lateral line scales 41; scale rows above lateral line 7.6; 3 scale rows below lateral line; 38 vertebrae, 21 abdominal and 17 caudal vertebrae; large fourth and fifth infraorbital bones; maxilla without pointed anterior process, middle part of the frontal bone narrow; narrow neurocranium bone; the lower branched of the pharyngeal bone is long and delicate; inferior lamina of the urohyal bone is short and wide (Ref. 72459).

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=0.00813 (0.00388 - 0.01704), b=3.13 (2.97 - 3.29), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-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 (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (19 of 100) .
