Spine dorsali (totale): 0; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 77-84; Spine anali 0; Raggi anali molli: 55 - 62. Distinguished from all other Micronesian genera by having a nearly continuous bony ridge extending from the anterior margin of the lower eye to the posterior margin of the upper eye, and a narrow interorbital space, always greater than the greatest eye diameter.
