Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 17 - 19; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 11-13; Taggstrålar i analfenan 3; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 9 - 11; Ryggkotor: 36 - 38. This species is distinguished by the following: eyes relatively small and snout relatively long (eye length usually shorter than snout length, 86.7-105% of snout length), number of dorsal fin rays relatively high (total number of spines and soft rays in dorsal fin usually 30 or 31). Large males (>117.2 mm LS) with long pelvic fin (>30% of standard length LS), a distinct pearl-grey longitudinal line through the upper end of the pectoral fin base, and without a black large blotch on nape (Ref. 74417).
