soft rays: 6 - 7. Five separate and goldish-yellow stripes on the body with the third stripe not meeting the fourth stripe. No dark blotch on the upper opercle but with a yellow stripe when alive. Pored lateral line scales 52 - 54 and 5 - 6 on the scaly sheath of the caudal fin. Body depth in SL, 2.84 - 3.16; suborbital depth in eye diameter 2/3.

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01413 (0.00659 - 0.03029), b=2.99 (2.82 - 3.16), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.3 ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (22 of 100) .
