(total): 17 - 19;
soft rays: 7 - 9. This species is characterized by the following: adults with a wine-colored abdomen in life; bars on sides of body with alternating intensity, the second one is much lighter than first and third; arms of first epibranchial bone are divergent (vs. parallel); supraoccipital crest undulating (vs. straight); ventral angle of articular obtuse (vs. right-angled); absence of an anteriorly directed pronounced convexity on ventral process of articular (vs. present); procurrent rays of caudal fin 2 (vs. 3-4) (Ref. 74403).

Estimates of some properties based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5625 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01905 (0.00846 - 0.04293), b=3.07 (2.88 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Resilience (Ref. 69278
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (15 of 100) .
