Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 80. Body tapering, belly rounded before pelvic fins, with 18 to 20 + 34 to 36 = 54 or 55 keeled scutes from isthmus to anus. Maxilla short, not reaching to edge of gill cover. Pectoral fin with 6 long filaments and 11 (rarely 12) branched fin rays, longer than those of pelvic fin.
