soft rays: 9. This species is characterized by the following features: D XI, 9; A III, 9; pectoral rays 15; lateral line scales 17 + 6; median predorsal scales 5; horizontal scale rows on cheek below eye 2; gill rakers 13; body depth 3.1 in SL; head length 2.9 in SL; snout length 3.9 in head; males with lunate caudal fin with produced lobes; pelvic fins relatively short, not reaching anal fin origin when depressed; color when alive, males with a dusky brown overall coloration, bronze hue on breast and belly, dark brown median and pelvic fins with broad white posterior margins on dorsal and caudal fins, dorsal and ventral edges of caudal fin with prominent brown margins that taper to a point posteriorly (Ref. 75880).
Sighted in a habitat characterised by a steep slope beginning in relatively deep water; about 10 individuals, including the holotype, were observed at 40 m, on a flat to gently sloping rubble bottom along the upper edge of a vertical drop-off (Ref. 75880).
