Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

A Sicyopterus with three clefts (one anteriorly and two midlaterally) on upper lip, with smooth lip and with a second dorsal fin with 1 spine and 10 segmented rays. The sexual dimorphism is well developed with males with fewer scales in LS (51-55 vs. 56-58) and PD (0-15 vs. 19-26) and less teeth in lower jaw (3-6 vs. 7-9) than females. A distinctive red pattern on the anal fin, more or less marked. Caudal fin branched rays 12-13 (Ref. 90225).

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=0.01122 (0.00514 - 0.02450), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (18 of 100) .
