Espinas dorsales (total): 9; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 21; Espinas anales 3; Radios blandos anales: 17. Pelvic fin small (Ref. 13608). A very deep-bodied, short and strongly compressed fish. Facial profile nearly vertical and concave. Pelvic fin very short (Ref. 26938).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Adults usually found near the bottom from inshore waters to at least 54 m depth, but may form schools near the surface (Ref. 5217).
