soft rays: 14 - 15;
Vertebrae: 25. This species is distinguished from its congener in having the following set of characters: body slender, 2.7-3.4 in SL (mean 3.0); when fresh, upper margin of dorsal-fin rays reddish; soft anal-fin rays 14-15 (usually 15); pored lateral-line scales 34-35 (mode 34) (Ref. 93115).

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804
= 0.7500 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01413 (0.00647 - 0.03084), b=3.04 (2.86 - 3.22), 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
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
