Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 8; Vertebrae: 27. Diagnosis: preoperculum without a spine; mental fraenum indistinct, covered by sensory papillae; mouth large; reaching to below a point between anterior pupil and mideye; jaws forming an angle of 30-35° with body axis; upper margin of upper jaw in line with mideye; cheeks tapering; interorbital narrow, much less than eye; predorsal area scaled forward to eyes; cheek naked; operculum patch of scales dorsally; pectoral base covered by small scales; prepelvic area largely covered with embedded scales, sometimes with thin naked area anteriorly; belly fully scaled; 1st dorsal fin with spines 2-6 extending beyond other spines when fin depressed; 1st dorsal fin without black spot posteriorly; pelvic fin thin and oval, much longer than wide; reaching just short of anus; 2nd dorsal rays I,9; anal rays I,8; pectoral rays usually 19; longitudinal scale count 31-35; predorsal scale count 23-31; transverse scale count (TRB) 11.5-12.5; gill rakers on outer face of 1st arch 1+1+6-9; lower gill rakers on outer face of 2nd arch 8-9; branched caudal rays 13-14, usually 14; vertebrae 11+16=27(4*); papillae: line 1 (before nasal pore) composed of 2 rows of papillae posteriorly, 1 anteriorly; line 2 (between nasal pores) composed of single row of papillae, continuous across snout; line 5 (suborbital) composed of single row of papillae joining line 7 below anterior margin of eye; line 6 (suborbital branch) absent; lines 7, 9, 10 (LL cheek rows) each composed of single row of papillae, reaching to posterior end of preoperculum; line 8 and 11 (LT row) reaching to near end of preoperculum; line 12 (Outer POP-mandibular) composed of single row of papillae, with an arch at posterior end of jaws and continuous with papillae line posteriorly; line 13 (Inner POP-mandibular) composed of 2 or 3 rows of papillae; line 20 (opercular VT) composed of single row of papillae, with multiple branches ventrally; line 21 (Upper opercular OT) composed of single row of papillae, line gently curved; line 22 (Lower opercular OT) short and composed of single row of papillae, with several ventral branches; several vertical papillae rows on belly; a single curved line anteriorly on most body scales (often obscure dorsally and posteriorly) (Ref. 103536).

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=0.00589 (0.00267 - 0.01297), b=3.09 (2.91 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.4 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 to moderate vulnerability (29 of 100) .
