Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Vértebra: 98. Diagnosis: Four dark saddles, more or less equally distributed along the head and body. Relatively small, dark pigmented dorsal fins, each with a white distal streak. Large pectoral fins. Unique egg case, with 2 long tendrils extending from its base and flanges with 2 turns. This species differs from H. japonicus in having 4 dark saddles (vs. 11-14); a smaller first-dorsal fin (9.3-10.9% TL vs. 11-21% TL); an egg case of 2 turns (vs. 3), bearing extremely long tendrils (vs. short) (Ref. 54826).
