soft rays: 11;
Vertebrae: 26. Differs from other congeners by the following characters: broad oblique blackish bar extending from below eye to lower edge of preopercular margin; dorsal and anal fins almost always with 11 rays; pectoral fin always with 15 rays; jaw length sexually dimorphic; spines of first dorsal fin usually same height as second fin, spines with no filaments; species sexually dichromatic; lack of a short transverse row of sensory papillae in the lower part of the preopercular; scales in lateral series 48-52; breast scaled; important reddish longitudinal band on outer margin on first and second dorsal fins on males and females; second dorsal, caudal and anal fin length in male, preanal length in male, jaw length in female (Ref. 78217).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00977 (0.00442 - 0.02163), b=3.05 (2.86 - 3.24), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.5 ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
