Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11; Vertebrae: 31 - 33. Aphyodite grammica can be diagnosed from other species of the genus Aphyodite by having 30-32 longitudinal scales (vs. 26-29). It further differs from A. apiaka by having 9-10 predorsal scales (vs. 7 or 8), 14-16 dentary teeth (vs. 11-13), i10 or i11 pectoral rays (vs. i12), and by the sensory canal of the first infraorbital shorter than half length of the bone (vs. sensory canal of the first infraorbital longer than half length of the bone); and from A. tupebas by possessing tricuspid teeth in the premaxilla and dentary (vs. only conical teeth), and five longitudinal scale rows between dorsal-fin origin and lateral line (vs. four) (Ref. 116757).
