Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 5.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 54980)
soft rays: 16 - 17. Single cirrus on each side of nape; 3-6 cirri on supraorbital tentacle; upper lip margin smooth medially, lateral 1/3 crenulate; body coloration light gray-brown, 6 short paired bars along sides of body, numerous, generally longitudinal, rows of white spots and dashes; head pale brown bearing 2 oblique black striations behind eye and brown band between, dorsally with numerous dark brown dots, and dark brown lines on ventral area. Dorsal spines XIII, 13-15 (rarely 13); anal rays usually 16; lateral line terminating below second and fourth dorsal soft rays; gill rakers 16-17 (Ref. 54980).
Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114).

Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00741 (0.00333 - 0.01648), b=3.00 (2.81 - 3.19), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 2.0 ±0.00 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278
