Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 10 - 12. Poor development of papillae on head; margin of upper lip smooth; dorsal origin much closer to upper pectoral base than to caudal base; anus located much closer to anal fin origin than to rear margin of disc and under 8th dorsal ray; eye 1.2 (1.0-1.4) in bony interorbital space and 5.6 (4.7-7.3) in head; tip of depressed anal fin extends well posterior (about an eye's diameter) to that of the depressed dorsal fin (Ref. 42104).
