Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 5-6; Anal soft rays: 6; Vertebrae: 42 - 44. This species is distinguished from Barryichthys hutchinsi by having a longer, narrower body (body depth at dorsal-fin origin 7-8% SL vs. 10-11% SL); more slender head (head width at widest point 55-61% vs. 66-75% HL); depth at orbit 27-29% vs. 30-32% HL; interorbital width 20-24% vs. 27-33% HL; the ventral margin of orbit visible in ventral view (vs. obscured by cheek); longer abdominal region with more vertebrae (21 vs. 17) and more ribs (15 vs. 11-12), epicentrals (18-19 vs. 14-15) and total vertebrae (42-44 vs. 38-39). Live colour pattern, including body background colour green (vs. golden yellow to olive-brown), no darker markings along dorsal midline or body side (vs. dorsal midline and lateral body side with darker markings) (Ref. 120657).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = No PD50 data   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this BS (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.2 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
Climate Vulnerability (Ref. 125649):   (0 of 100) .
