Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 7.7 - 15.1, mean 10.6 (based on 338 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 1.0625   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00115 (0.00043 - 0.00310), b=3.07 (2.84 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  4.1   ±0.6 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  Very Low, minimum population doubling time more than 14 years ().
