Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 8; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 5. Diagnosis: Underside of mandible with numerous tiny pores, no ridges. Preocular spine divided into 2 points, and flattened anteriorly and posteriorly. Two additional spines present between lacrimal and suborbital ridges. Upper opercular spine simple, tip pointed; midinterorbital space moderately deep, not covered with scales; interorbital ridge indistinct. Pored lateral-line scales 35; longitudinal scale rows 62; scale rows between last dorsal-fin spine origin and lateral line 6. Posterior margin of maxilla reaching a vertical at posterior margin of pupil. Pectoral fin long (2.9 in SL), extending beyond a vertical at origin of last dorsal-fin spine; membrane anterior to sixth dorsal-fin spine extending up to 42% of the spine length; first anal-fin spine 1.6 in third spine; second pelvic-fin soft ray 1.9 in HL. Bilobed portion of swimbladder less than one-third of total swimbladder length. There are no distinct small black spots on head or lateral line (Ref. 54394).
