Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-9; Anal soft rays: 6; Vertebrae: 32. Diagnosed from its congeners by the following characters: presence of premaxillary and dentary accessory teeth (vs. absence); shallower caudal peduncle (7.7-8.7% in SL vs. 9.0-10.8% in Rhinolekos britskii and 10.2-13.0% in Rhinolekos garavelloi); 18-20 mid-dorsal plates (vs. 21-24 in Rhinolekos britskii and 23-27 in Rhinolekos garavelloi). Can be further distinguished from Rhinolekos britskii by having transverse dark bands in pectoral-, pelvic- and anal-fin rays absent, (vs. present) 32 vertebrae (vs. 31), and anterior portion of the compound supraneuralfirst dorsal-fin proximal radial contacting the neural spine of the 10th vertebra (vs. 9th); and from Rhinolekos garavelloi by having 26-28 dorsal plates (vs. 30-35); 20-22 mid-ventral plates (vs. 24-28); larger postanal length (35.7-41.3% in SL vs. 29.0-34.6%); shorter thoracic length (13.7-17.6% in SL vs. 18.1-20.8%); and slender head, width 20.5-22.9% in SL (vs. 24.6-28.1%) (Ref. 86681).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00550 (0.00229 - 0.01319), b=3.11 (2.90 - 3.32), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  2.2   ±0.1 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) .
