Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal soft rays: 5. Upper body reddish brown; pelvic and anal fins red to reddish orange; 1 scale count between the vent and anal fin (Ref. 37768). Robust body, not compressed; 3-5 gill rakers on lower arm of first arch; 7-9 predorsal scales; and 9-14 dorsal-spine serrations (Ref. 12693). Usually with 2 scale rows between anus and anal origin; distance between distal serrae on posterior margin of last simple dorsal ray much greater than width on bases of serrae (Ref. 43281).
