Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 22-25; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 13 - 15. This species distinguished by the following characters: 22-25 (usually 24) segmented dorsal-fin rays; 13-15 (usually 14) segmented anal fin rays; 16 circumpeduncular scales; second anal-fin spine much stouter than the third; a distinct bright yellow to orange stripe or series of spots along the base of the dorsal fin (when preserved pale grey to pale brown) (Ref. 81967).
