Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 6; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 26-30; Spine anali 2; Raggi anali molli: 26 - 28. This species differs from its congeners in having D VI; acute head, without rostral projection or tuberosity in adults; bony plates of caudal peduncle 2; relatively large eye (6.3-7.2% SL); median body depth, 2.8-2.9 in SL; teeth on upper jaw 100-120, on lower jaw 90-110; uniformly brownish body color; relatively small adult size which might not exceed 350 mm SL; and a different genome structure (Ref. 87782).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

This species feeds on benthic crustaceans and bivalves, indicating that this fish feeds on marine organisms living on the sea floor. Caught by bottom gill-net and hook and line at 70-80 m depth (Ref. 87782).
