Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 71-86; Raggi anali molli: 58 - 68; Vertebre: 40 - 43. Body oval; upper eye less than its own diameter from dorsal profile of head; anterior nostril on blind side not enlarged; anterior nostril on eyed side with a backward-pointing tube hardly reaching to front border of lower eye; dorsal fin beginning near vertical through front border of upper eye; pectoral fin on eyed side with 6-8 fin rays, on blind side shorter; caudal fin separate from last dorsal and anal fin rays; lateral line supra-temporal branch forming an angular S-shape, the ascending part running upward and backward (Ref. 4710).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Found on mud and sand of the continental shelf, from the shore down to 250 m (Ref. 4710). Feeds on small benthic invertebrates, mainly amphipods and polychaetes (Ref. 4710). Minimum depth range from Ref. 121791.
