Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 0; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 7; Spine anali 0; Raggi anali molli: 6; Vertebre: 35. This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: D 7; A 6; segmented caudal fin rays 15; vertebrae 35; upper procurrent caudal rays associated with both the neural spine of second preural centrum and epural; mandibular pores 3; lacrymal pores 3; nasal pore 1; predorsal length is about 60% SL. Colouration: body whitish with reddish-orange blotches, no reddish-orange stripes on cheek, belly whitish (Ref. 99639).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Collected from muddy bottom (96-100 m) together with fist-sized mudstones, probably no marine algae, so most likely they live on mudstones (Ref. .99639).

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 body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
