Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 0; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 6-8; Spine anali 0; Raggi anali molli: 11 - 14. Diagnosis: Larger and deep-bodied ‘Lampeye’ species, slight lateral compression; dorsal fin rounded, anal fin trapezoid, caudal fin truncated; dorsal fin with 6-8 rays, anal fin with 11-14 rays, displacement between dorsal and anal fins 1/7-8; scales on the mid-lateral series 25-28 (Ref. 57259). Colouration: Male colouration: the basic colour is pale grey-green to olive with a light blue iridescence on the sides; also present on the sides are 10-15 dark grey crossbars which, towards the front break up into spots; the dorsal and anal fins are yellow-green, with grey and silver spots at the base and some grey spots in the posterior parts, arranged into curved bands; the caudal fin is lemon yellow to pale orange with dark grey and silver spots at the upper and lower parts, followed by a narrow orange to red border; the central part of this fin has some curved grey crossbars (Ref. 57259). Female colouration: the body is a translucent silver-grey with a silver abdominal region and lacking the grey crossbars present on the male; all unpaired fins are colourless to pale yellow (Ref. 57259).
