Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 10; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 9; Espinas anales 3; Radios blandos anales: 8. The only Lethrinus with its 2nd dorsal spine the longest. The inner surface of the pectoral fin may be scaleless, partially covered with scales or densely covered with scales. Body color is tan or brown on the upper sides, white on the lower sides, with three tan or brown stripes. The sides often have scattered irregular black oblique bars and a square black blotch above the pectoral fin and bordering below the lateral line.

The fins are pale, speckled with small white blotches.
