Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 6. Distinguished from its congeners by the following combination of characters: 25 lateral line scales, 9 predorsal scales, dorsal fin inserted nearer the base of caudal fin, opposite to slightly in advance of ventral fin, dorsal spine length shorter to the body depth; weak and smooth, head length shorter than body depth; 3.4-3.77 in SL, pectoral fin not reaching ventral fin and height of caudal peduncle 1.05-1.31 in the length of caudal peduncle (Ref. 57812).
This species is poorly-known, with no information on the population, biology and micro-level distribution (Ref. 123468).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00933 (0.00422 - 0.02065), b=3.01 (2.82 - 3.20), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 2.9 ±0.2 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (21 of 100) .
