Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 3; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 3. Metamorphosed females distinguished by the following characteristics: globular escal bulb, with short, truncated, distal prolongation without appendages, and a pair of posterolateral appendages, each consisting of a tapering stem about equal in length to diameter of escal bulb, bearing distal cluster of short, highly branched filaments; barbel divided near base into a median and 2 lateral primary branches, each with about 7 secondary branches, each in turn with varying numbers of filamentous tertiary branches and bearing a single distal photophore; lateral primary branches 44% SL, forming symmetrical pair with secondary branches of decreasing length, spaced along their length; caudal peduncle with ventrolateral series of large subdermal melanophores (Ref. 86949).
