Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 8; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 8. Lepidomeda copei can be diagnosed by the following characters: leatherlike in appearance due to its small scales (lateral line scales 68-85); black specks on silver blue back and sides; dorsal fin with 8 rays; anal fin with 8 rays; pharyngeal teeth 1,4-4,1 to 2,5-4,2; slender; barely compressed body; large eye; terminal mouth; and rounded snout. Breeding males possess red paired and anal-fin bases, lower love of caudal fin, and upper edge of gill cover (Ref. 86798).
