Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 19; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 14-15; Taggstrålar i analfenan 2; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 12 - 13; Ryggkotor: 34. Body moderately elongate and compressed. Two lateral lines, the lower originating below the 6th to the 7th spine of the first dorsal fin, descending sharply to ventral contour of body, dividing into a short anterior branch and a much longer posterior branch.
