Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Radios blandos dorsales (total): 173-222; Radios blandos anales: 164 - 208. Most easily distinguished from N. scolopaceus by its pale color; has more postorbital and preopercular pores. Rectangle formed by the lateral line pores is shorter and higher than in scolopaceus. Resembles N. curvirostris in its pale color but the subcutaneous dark bars are not as evident. May be instantly distinguished from curvirostris by the more numerous postorbital and preopercular pores and the much shorter and higher rectangle formed by the lateral line pores. Has smaller teeth than curvirostris.

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 6.8 - 7.9, mean 7.4 °C (based on 6 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.6270   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00102 (0.00046 - 0.00225), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliencia (Ref. 120179):  Bajo, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo de 4.5-14 años (Assuming tmax>10).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High vulnerability (63 of 100) .
