Espinas dorsales (total): 2; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 25-28; Espinas anales 0; Radios blandos anales: 22 - 25. Ranges from pale greenish to dirty white in color; blackish-brown saddles above; normally with a round dark blotch above origin of anal fin; soft dorsal and anal fins hyaline, tips dusky; caudal fin yellowish (Ref. 4421).
