Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12-14; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 9 - 11. Diagnosis: distinguished from Neolebias by its always complete lateral line; caudal peduncle 1-1.5x longer that high (Ref. 2936, 86396). 32-36 scales in a longitudinal series (Ref. 81638, 86396). Four, rarely 5, scales between dorsal fin origin and lateral line (Ref. 81638). 11-16 (Ref. 86396) or 12-14 (Ref. 81638) total dorsal fin rays. 10 (Ref. 86396) or 9-11 (Ref. 81638) total anal fin rays.
