Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 3.3 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 94699); 3.8 cm SL (female)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 9-10; Anal soft rays: 11 - 14; Vertebrae: 37 - 38. This species can be distinguished from its congeners by having the following characters: urogenital papilla externally visible in both males and females (vs. absent in M. pearsoni); length of urogenital papilla of sexually active males is shorter, half length of anal-fin base (vs. about equal to length of anal fin-base in M. kontos); dorsal fin height 16.1-17.8% SL in females and juveniles (vs. 13.4-15.8% SL in M. kontos); and 5 premaxillary tooth cusps (vs. 7 in M. kontos) (Ref. 94699).
