Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 5. Preserved color blackish on top of head and dorsal region merging to dark olive brown on sides; paler or yellowish ventrally; minute spots forms a dark margin to scales on sides; fin rays more or less dusky. Eyes with a narrow circular gelatinous lid. 8 (rarely 9) scales from nape to dorsal. 2.5 scales between origin of ventral and lateral line. Ventral axillary scale pointed, 1.5-1.75X in head. Minute pores usually cover the top of head. Short snout rounded equals eye or a seventh longer.

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01096 (0.00518 - 0.02319), b=2.99 (2.81 - 3.17), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 2.9 ±0.3 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 (20 of 100) .
