Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 30-33; Anal soft rays: 15 - 18; Vertebrae: 34 - 37. This species is distinguished from P. maderensis and P. nudarcus by having fingerlike papillae along the dorsal margin of the hyoid arch and at the interhyal-posterior ceratohyal articulation, with dorsal-fin rays 30-33 (vs. 27-31), fewer anal-fin rays 15-18 (vs. 17-20); differs from P. aquilus by having greater body depth, >50% SL (vs <50% SL in P. aquilus) and its short and deep caudal-peduncle (vs. relatively long and shallow in P. aquilus) (Ref. 87954).
