Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species is distinguished by the following characters: dorsal disc with a prominent mid-scapular thorn and dermal denticles which are small, spinular, partly embedded and are restricted to the snout, supraorbital, interorbital and mid-lumbar regions and midline of the tail; nasal capsules are oval, relatively broad and short; the ischiopubic bar of pelvic girdle is strongly arched with concave outer anterior margin, short angular prepelvic process and long posterior mesial process (Ref. 113541).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00871 (0.00265 - 0.02867), b=3.03 (2.77 - 3.29), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Assuming fecundity<100).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (35 of 100) .
