Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 6. This species is distinguished from its congeners by having the following set of characters: 15 pectoral-fin rays; 34 (or 35) pored lateral-line scales; 35 (36-37) scale rows in longitudinal series; 2.5 scale rows between lateral line and sixth dorsal-fin spine base; 33 (37 in right side) (35-43) preopercular serrae; 7 (8) (7-10) interopercular serrae; 21 (19) (18-28) subopercular serrae;; interorbital scales slightly extending anteriorly, it is almost reaching or slightly beyond level of mid-orbit; relatively wide interorbital region, width 3.1-3.7 (mean 3.3) % SL; length of longest anal-fin soft ray is moderate, 17.4-18.7 (18.1) % SL; colour of pelvic fin white with several small yellow spots; no longitudinal dark bands on body sides (Ref. 116920).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5010   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01096 (0.00533 - 0.02257), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (11 of 100) .
