Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 80-86; Raggi anali molli: 51 - 59; Vertebre: 43 - 44. The species is characterized by the following: vertebrae 13 + 30-31 = 43-44, dorsal fin rays 80-86, anal fin rays 51-59; snout is terminal to slightly inferior; eye small 1.4-1.6 % SL; pectoral fin length 9.5-9.9 % SL; scales absent on head and body; posterior nostril moderately small, more than half the size of eye; lower preopercular pore 1, small; weak ventral spine on maxilla positioned behind rear of eye; single pair of pseudoclaspers dorsally curved at their distal ends, thin, about half the length of penis (Ref. 57886).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

A recently caught female specimen from Bird Island, Algoa Bay (SAIAB 70867) was found to be gravid at 54 mm SL with four 20-23 mm SL, fully developed embryos; their preserved coloration is uniformly light brown, slightly darker than their mother (Ref. 57886).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00447 (0.00174 - 0.01147), b=3.10 (2.87 - 3.33), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 69278):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (11 of 100) .
