Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9; Dorsal soft rays (total): 21-22; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 17 - 18. This species is easily recognized by its long pelvic fin which fit into a groove along the midline of the belly when depressed. Scutes are present along its straight lateral line.
