Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 0; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 7; Taggstrålar i analfenan 0; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 6; Ryggkotor: 35. This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: D 7; A 6; segmented caudal fin rays 15; vertebrae 35; upper procurrent caudal rays associated with both the neural spine of second preural centrum and epural; mandibular pores 3; lacrymal pores 3; nasal pore 1; predorsal length is about 60% SL. Colouration: body whitish with reddish-orange blotches, no reddish-orange stripes on cheek, belly whitish (Ref. 99639).
