Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 11 - 13; Dorsal soft rays (total): 15-17; Anal spines : 3; Anal soft rays : 9 - 10; Vertebrae : 27. Diagnosis: body oblong and compressed; snout rather short, about equal to eye diameter; 2 anterior pores on chin, followed by a median pit bearing openings of another pair of pores (Ref. 57395 ). A pore above posterior end of maxilla and under preorbital bone; last dorsal spine about the same length or even shorter, exceptionally somewhat longer, than penultimate one (Ref. 81655 ). 2nd anal fin spine longer and stouter than 3rd (Ref. 57395 , 81655 ), third anal spine mostly much thinner (Ref. 81655 ). Caudal fin forked; scales slightly ctenoid; 6-8 scale rows between lateral line and middle of spinous dorsal-fin base (Ref. 57395 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found over sand and mud (Ref. 2683 ) in coastal waters (Ref. 2683 , 57395 ). Enters estuaries and lagoons (Ref. 2135 , 57395 ). Feeds on other fish (Ref. 5377 ), shrimps, crabs, mollusks, annelids, zooplankton and detritus (Ref. 28587 ). Often confused with P. jubelini (Ref. 57395 ).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 15.6 - 20.8, mean 17.9 (based on 36 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01514 (0.00696 - 0.03289), b=2.98 (2.81 - 3.15), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.3   ±0.49 se; Based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
