Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 6-7; Anal soft rays: 4 - 5. Escal bulb without membranous anterior crest. Distal escal appendage an elongate, cylindrical stalk, with a slender, elongate prolongation emerging anteriorly from bases of escal hooks, bearing numerous lateral serrations or filaments.
