Etymology: Crossorhombus: Greek krossoi = tassel + Greek, rhombos = paralelogram (Ref. 45335).
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Marine; demersal. Subtropical
Northwest Pacific: southern Japan (Ref. 559) and Taiwan (Ref. 5193).
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
soft rays: 63 - 73;
Vertebrae: 35 - 37. Similar to S. kobensis, but differs from it in having the caudal fin with 2 simple rays on upper and lower margins, and with 2 broad dark bands, and the pectoral fin much shorter than the head. In males, middle part of body on blind side dark-blue and interorbital width broader than that of females.
