Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Ryggkotor: 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.
