Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 9. This species is distinguished by the following characters: bony interorbital trench absent, but eyes elevated well above the interorbital region forming a non-bony trench; head broader than deep, distinctly depressed; predorsal largely naked with body scales extending forward to just above pectoral origin to just above posterior quarter of operculum; opercular scales absent; D2 I,10; A I, 9; pectoral rays 19; pelvic fins connected to form plate, no interspinal membrane; each scale pocket with concentrated xanthophores along margin, forming a diamond-shaped mark in life, but fading in preserved material, but with a concentration of melanophores along margins of scale pockets visible; vertical bands 4 on head in life, none on body; cheek sensory papillae a reduced transverse pattern; mouth oblique, forming an angle of about 35°-40° with body axis (Ref. 85603).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 21.5 - 21.5, mean 21.5 (based on 2 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00871 (0.00414 - 0.01834), 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):  3.1   ±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) .
