Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 0; Espinas anales 0. Very closely resembles S. commerson, but lacking paired dark patches behind occiput and paired dark lines before dorsal fin. Lower gill rakers higher than in S. commerson which has (usually 23 to 28). For distinctions from other species, see S. commerson.
