Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 6. This species is distinguished from its congeners by the following set of characters: scale rows between the lateral line and middle of spinous dorsal-fin base 3 (2 full-sized plus 1 half-sized); pored lateral-line scales 42-44 (modally 44); pectoral-fin rays 16; predorsal scales 7-8 (modally 7); no scale rows from ventral side of dentary; scale rows on interorbital area extending to mid-orbit level; maxilla expanded posteriorly and covered ventrally by high skin fold; outermost row teeth of upper jaw are distinctly enlarged; side of the body with longitudinal dashed black stripe; 8-9 short white sub-triangular bars ventrally; dorsal-fin pale yellow with reddish pigment mostly restricted at the base of spines and rays (Ref. 123773).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804):  PD50 = No PD50 data   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01072 (0.00509 - 0.02256), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
