Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Anal soft rays : 18 - 22; Vertebrae : 50 - 54. Distinguished from its congeners by the following characters: caudal fin deeply forked; outer, unbranched principal rays of upper and lower lobes longest in each lobe and about equal in length; posterior fontanelle elongate, forming conspicuous groove on supraoccipital bone, skin pigmented black in groove (vs. congeners which are without elongate posterior fontanelle, supraoccipital groove, or black pigment); unique in having combination of elongate body and broad-shaped head (vs. congeners with either elongate body and head, or stout body with broad head) (Ref, 57983).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00447 (0.00276 - 0.00724), b=3.11 (2.97 - 3.25), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this species & (Sub)family-body (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  4.3   ±0.8 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  High vulnerability (59 of 100).
