Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: a wedge-shaped disc, with its dorsal surface covered in minute dermal denticles but without thorns; long snout, its length 3.6 times interspiracular distance; moderately large orbit, its diameter 1.7 times spiracle length; oblique nostrils, its length 1.6 times internarial distance; the anterior nasal flaps are inserted into internarial space well away from nostril margin; posterior nasal flaps are broad; ridges of rostral cartilage well-separated dorsally and almost parallel; narrow prebranchial sensory-pore patch, extending to first gill slit; distance between first gill slits is 1.5 times distance between fifth gill slits; distance between fifth gill slits is 3.4 times in ventral head length; long postscapular sensory canal, not grooved and extending more than three-quarters distance to pectoral-fin insertions; moderately tall dorsal fins; pelvic fin's inner margin is shorter than its base; interdorsal distance is more than 3.1 times first dorsal-fin base; outer spiracular fold is distinctly larger than the inner fold; dorsal margin of caudal fin ca. 2 times preventral margin; post-synarcual (free) vertebral centra 171; total vertebral centra 180; nasal lamellae 52; dorsal disc is brownish and covered with well defined rusty brown spots and blotches and poorly defined white spots with greyish edges (Ref. 117108).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.7   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Medio, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione 1.4 - 4.4 anni (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (40 of 100) .
