Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 340-373; Anal soft rays: 253 - 294; Vertebrae: 121 - 128. Uniformly olive-brown in life. Body depth 27-31; HL 7.5 - 7.7 (Ref. 37816). Dorsal fin begins above or slightly anterior to the gill opening. Pectoral fin well-developed, rounded, almost twice eye diameter in length. Snout relatively deep. Gape moderate, rictus behind posterior margin of eye. Anterior nostril tubular, slightly behind tip of snout, directed anterolaterally. Posterior nostril a simple elliptical opening in front of middle of eye. Lateral line obsolete except for 2-3 pores in the branchial region (Ref. 40884).
