Actinopteri (ray-finned fishes) > Eupercaria/misc
(Various families in series Eupercaria) > Sillaginidae
Etymology: Sillago: From a locality in Australia .
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm 14.5, range 14 - 16 cm
soft rays: 18 - 20;
Vertebrae: 32 - 34. Coloration is very similar to S. bassensis. No dark spot at the base of the pectoral fin; a series of oblique rusty brown bars on back and upper sides, with a longitudinal row of rusty brown blotches along the midlateral silver stripe.
It is likely that this species spawn more than once during the spawning period, and that some eggs are resorbed by females at the end of the spawning season (Ref. 27577).
