Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 11; Vertebrae: 26. This species is distinguished by the following characters: second dorsal-fin rays I, 12; A rays I,11; predorsal area broadly scaled to just behind vertical through posterior edge of preopercle, a narrow median wedge of scales extending further forward almost to pore D; posterior naris no flap on anterior rim; head and body pale with brown reticulate mottling, forming about 11 X-shaped markings along the sides, between pectoral and caudal-fin bases (Ref. 59014).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5040   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.2 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) .
