Dorsal spines (total): 8; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10-12; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 10 - 11. Dorsal rays VII + I, 10–12 (usually 11); anal rays I,10 (10–11, rarely 11); pectoral rays 15–17 (usually 16); branched caudal rays 10–12 (usually 11); mouth ventral, the snout overhanging; tongue truncate; rostral frenum present; color in alcohol pale yellowish with a black stripe from front of snout, through lower half of eye, across upper part of operculum and dorsal third of pectoral-fin base, broadening along lower side of body, to posterior end of caudal fin; a broad black middorsal stripe on snout, continuing onto postorbital head (where often divided medially), then along base of dorsal fin, joining to a single narrow stripe dorsally on caudal peduncle, and extending submarginally to end of caudal fin; color in life pale gray to white, with black stripes as described; a narrow, pale blue, pale yellow, or white stripe from anterior nostril through dorsal part of eye, continuing as a narrow bright blue stripe within lower part of pale gray stripe on upper side of body, and extending as a narrow blue band into caudal fin.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00419 - 0.01894), b=3.07 (2.90 - 3.24), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months ().
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
