This species is distinguished by the following characters: D 66-74; A 50-57; pelvic rays 4; lateral line on ocular side of head with a ventral branch of 5-7 pored scales, remaining horizontal anterior part with 4-5 pored scales; lateral-line scales to point of branching on head 78-87, including 8-9 anterior to upper end of gill opening; vertebrae 38-40; dorsal pterygiophores anterior to fourth neural spine 8-9; body slender, depth 3.0-3.15 in SL; head length 4.0-4.25 in SL; no caudal-peduncle; eye diameter 5.7-8.1 in HL; least vertical interorbital width 11.2-26.0 in HL; scales of body of adults with 8-12 cteni (mostly 9 or 10); longest dorsal ray 1.8-2.15 in HL; caudal fin 3.8-4.3 in SL; origin of pelvic fins adjacent on ventral edge of body, the fins attached posteriorly to base of anal papilla; short pelvic fins, reaching base of first anal ray, 2.7-2.9 in HL; ocular side brown, finely mottled with darker brown, with 3 longitudinal rows of dark brown spots of eye size or smaller, one below dorsal fin, one above anal fin, and one along lateral line; dorsal and anal fins dusky yellowish with the rays more heavily pigmented, some with sections in outer part still darker; basal scaled part of caudal fin colored like body, the rest of fin pale yellowish with scattered faint small dark spots (Ref. 84817).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5020   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00977 (0.00456 - 0.02095), b=3.07 (2.90 - 3.24), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Alto, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione meno di 15 mesi (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (15 of 100) .
