Character: Body typically slender and elongate, without scales, encased in a series of bony rings. Snout slender and longer, its length 16-2.0 in HL. Superior trunk and tail ridges discontinuous; inferior trunk and tail ridges continuous; lateral trunk ridge confluent ends near anal ring.

Rings 18-20 + 38-46, darsal-fin rays 30-47, pectoral-fin rays 12-13. Mainly brownish, usually mottled with pale. 
Habitat: Common in estuaries and in association with Zostera and other vegetation. Juveniles associate with drifting seaweed. 
Distribution: Distributed in Gult of Tongking, northward to the vicinity of Vladivostok, including Taiwan, the Ryukyu Is. and the main islands of Japan. It is found in northern Taiwanese waters. 
Utility: Used in Chinese medicine

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00041 (0.00018 - 0.00093), b=3.11 (2.93 - 3.29), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.1   ±0.1 se; Based on diet studies. Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (24 of 100) .
