Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 0; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 6-8; Taggstrålar i analfenan 0; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 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).
