Classification / Names Common names | Synonyms | Catalog of Fishes ( gen. , sp. ) | ITIS | CoL | WoRMS | Cloffa

Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Tetraodontiformes (Puffers and filefishes) > Tetraodontidae (Puffers) > Tetraodontinae
Etymology: Lagocephalus: Greek, lagos = hare + Greek, kephale = head (Ref. 45335 ) .

Issue
The specific epithet is spelled guntheri in Eschmeyer (CofF ver. Jul. 2010: Ref. 84883 ) that recommends however to change in guentheri , which we follow here.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 19.9 - 28.3, mean 26.5 (based on 1212 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5005   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.02138 (0.00919 - 0.04972), b=2.88 (2.70 - 3.06), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.6   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (23 of 100) .
