Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 3; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 12; Radios blandos anales: 6 - 7. Usually features one or two ocelli on the soft dorsal fin. Length to 14 cm (Ref. 48635).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Unusual among antennariids in often occupying brackish or even totally freshwater habitats. Most specimens were taken at 10 m depth or less. Oviparous. Eggs are bound in ribbon-like sheath or mass of gelatinous mucus called 'egg raft' or 'veil' (Ref. 6773).
