Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 2; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 25-28; Taggstrålar i analfenan 0; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 22 - 25. Ranges from pale greenish to dirty white in color; blackish-brown saddles above; normally with a round dark blotch above origin of anal fin; soft dorsal and anal fins hyaline, tips dusky; caudal fin yellowish (Ref. 4421).
