Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 10 - 11; Vertebrae: 27. This robust, large-eyed species is distinguished by the following characters: D2 I,11; A 11-12; pectoral-fin rays 19-20; body extensively scaled, with mid-lateral scales extending from just behind pectoral-fin axil to caudal-fin base; most scales are weakly ctenoid; cycloid scales on belly, in first row along dorsal- and anal-fin bases, and in anteriormost lateral row; well developed fifth pelvic-fin ray and is slightly greater in length than second pelvic-fin ray; relatively deep body; first and second dorsal-fin spines are greatly elongated, especially in females; first spine reaching posterior end of second dorsal-fin base in female holotype; first two anal-fin pterygiophores are inserted anterior to first haemal spine (Ref. 94726).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00631 (0.00286 - 0.01390), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.3 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 (10 of 100) .
