Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 14; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 15; Radios blandos anales: 7; Vértebra: 28. Diagnosis: 15-16 gill-rakers along lower limb of first arch; 36-38 lateral line scales (count started on upper line and continued on lower line, including the intermediate scales); an extremely robust lower pharyngeal jaw with mill-like molariform teeth occupying 2/3 of dentigerous surface (Ref. 52346).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Probably a benthic macrophage (Ref. 52346). Seems to feed mainly on insects and insect larvae; maternal mouthbrooder that does not pair-bond (Ref. 52307).
