soft rays: 9 - 10. This species can be diagnosed by the following combination of characters: second dorsal fin usually with 9 soft-rays; first dorsal fin pointed with 3-5 elongate spines in males; pectoral fin usually with 15 soft-rays; caudal-fin length 29-35% of SL in males; premaxillary teeth 33-45 in <50.0 mm SL; 44-47 in ? 50.0 mm SL; white patch behind pectoral-fin base absent in males; nape and posterior half of occipital region always covered by cycloid scales in both sexes; coloration in male usually with 7-11 obscure dusky transverse bars laterally on posterior half of trunk and tail; males sometimes with two broad dusky bars laterally below first and second dorsal-fin bases; black spots on longest pectoral-fin ray 6-12 in male, 0-6 in female (Ref. 94805).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (12 of 100) .
