Description synthétique Morphologie | Morphométrie

Épines dorsales (Total): 0; Rayons mous dorsaux (Total): 14-16; Épines anales 0; Rayons mous anaux: 23 - 25; Vertèbres: 45 - 47. Diagnosis: Small and slender or moderately deep-bodied fishes, its depth 20-28% of standard length, perhaps not reaching much over 2 cm standard length; belly rounded, pre-pelvic scutes 4-7, with lateral arms, but without keels; pelvic scute with 2 or 3 lateral arms; post-pelvic scutes 3-5, keeled and with arms; posterior supra-maxilla absent; lower gillrakers 10-12; pelvic insertion well before dorsal fin, with 1 unbranched and 6-7 branched finrays; anal fin beginning under dorsal fin base (Ref. 188, 81631, 93833). The presence of scutes distinguishes Thrattidion noctivagus from Congothrissa gossei and the absence of a posterior supra-maxilla distinguishes it from all other West or Central African pellonulines (Ref. 188).
