Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 14 - 17; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 10-13; Spine anali 3; Raggi anali molli: 9 - 11. Diagnosis: high number of gill-rakers on lower part of outer gill arch (36-39); short head, 32.3-35.8% of standard length; relatively anterior implantation of dorsal, pectoral and pelvic fins; short premaxillary pedicel, 30.4-33.6% head length (Ref. 55925).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Found in sediment-rich areas (Ref. 5595) of the rocky habitat (Ref. 5595, 55925), the intermediate habitat, over sand, and in the open water (Ref. 5595). Feeds on plankton (Ref. 5595).
