Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 14; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12-13; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 12 - 13; Vertebrae: 26. This species is characterized by the following: D XIV, 12-13; A II, 12-13; pectoral fin rays 19-20; 3 spiniform caudal fin rays; 16-17 tubed lateral line scales; gill rakers 5-7 + 19-20 = 25-27; white spots about a pupil size posteriorly, 1 at rear base of dorsal fin, another at the rear base of anal fin, and the third at mid base of caudal fin (these 3 spots usually fading after death, but may be visible as a pale area on preserved specimen) (Ref. 75861).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Life history characteristics for the family specify that this group is oviparous, with distinct pairing during breeding (Ref. 205). Eggs are demersal and adhere to the substrate (Ref. 205). Males guard and aerate the eggs (Ref. 205).

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=0.01778 (0.00793 - 0.03989), b=3.00 (2.83 - 3.17), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.1 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 to moderate vulnerability (29 of 100) .
