Spine dorsali (totale): 0; Spine anali 0; Raggi anali molli: 25 - 32. Snout short and pointed, tip at about eye center; maxilla moderate, tip pointed and reaching onto pre-operculum (but not beyond), extending beyond second supra-maxilla; sub-operculum with angular hind margin, but not formed into a triangular projection; lower gill rakers increasing in large fishes. Anal fin origin below front few dorsal fin rays. Silver stripe disappearing with age (Ref. 189).
