Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 0; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 6-8; Espinas anales 0; Radios blandos anales: 6 - 8. First 1 or 2 rays of dorsal fin embedded; caudal roundish, narrow; pelvic fins united anteriorly by wrinkled membrane to form the anterior portion of small adhesive disc which is completed posteriorly by a broad fold of skin from the ventral surface of body, the anterior and posterior segments of the disc separated by lateral clefts (Ref. 6885). Color light olive green to brown; females sometimes sparsely covered with distinct brownish red spots about the size of the pupil of the eye (Ref. 6885).
