Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species is distinguished by the following characters: very short gill rakers, more than 2 times length of gill filaments and 7-9 times its orbit; flattened, with two denticles on slightly widened apex, sparsely located on branchial arch (distance between rakers approximately equal to their length); dorsal-fin rays 35-37; anal-fin rays 21-22; gill rakers on first branchial arch 17-18; anterior contour of head is steep; head rather large (with 27-31% SL), its length 3.5 times in SL, as a rule, greater or equal to ventroanal distance; distinct lateral line (Ref. 95096).
