Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 6.4 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 36949)
soft rays: 7. Body depth 15.6-16.7% SL; caudal peduncle 2.0 times longer than deep; 19-23 bars on body in adults, 5-6 (not including a spot at caudal-fin base which results from the break down of a large blotch on caudal fin) in juveniles (Ref. 36949).
