Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 0; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 10; Taggstrålar i analfenan 0; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 18 - 19. Anal fin margin of females straight or very slightly concave; markedly convex in males (individual rays are stouter and coarser than those of females). Silver, bluish-grey to black-blue dorsally. Large black blotch on the caudal peduncle, with narrow extension on the caudal fin; round black spot behind the head. Dorsal fin grey, adipose dorsal fin orange.

Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

In Lake Victoria confined to shallow coastal areas (Ref. 34290, 104654), in water less than 20 m deep (Ref. 12526, 34290). Omnivore, feeding on aquatic plants, surface insects and small fishes, and sometimes on molluscs (Ref. 4903, 12526, 104654). Known to run up rivers and streams in Lake Victoria during rainy season (Ref. 4903). Apparently rare since introduction of Lates (Ref. 4967).
