Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 7. Scales on top of head not reaching to level of eyes. Snout, suborbital, interorbital, and temporal parts of head naked. Posterior margin of suborbital denticulate, a small spine in upper corner. 5 or 6 transverse rows of cheek scales. Preopercle serrate, opercle scaly. Lower limb of preopercle naked. Upper margin of opercle with a small, flat, rounded spine. Pectoral fins short, not reaching to level of anus. Pelvic fins long, reaching to level of anus.
