Short description आकृति विज्ञान | मौरफोमैटरिक्स

पृष्ठीय रीढ़ (सम्पूर्ण): 0; पृष्ठीय सौफट रेज़ (सम्पूर्ण): 13-15; गुदा कांटा 0; ऐनल सौफट रेज़: 16 - 20. Diagnosis: Body slender, its depth 18-27% of standard length; pre-pelvic scutes not strongly keeled, beginning under or behind base of last pectoral finray, 7-10 pre-pelvic and 9-12 post-pelvic scutes, belly rounded; snout bluntly rounded; lower jaw not projecting, exactly meeting tip of upper when mouth closed, deepest at mid-point of jaw, with small saw-like teeth on each side; pre-maxillae with small teeth pointing downward; maxilla very slender, its blade over 3 times as long as deep, upper edge ridged, lower edge without denticulations; posterior supra-maxilla very small, spatulate, its shaft about as long as its blade; lower gillrakers 14-16; silver stripe on flank, narrower anteriorly (Ref. 188, 28136). It differs from Potamothrissa whiteheadi in having a distinct shaft to the posterior supra-maxilla and lacking dermal denticles on the snout, and from P. acutirostris in its blunt snout and fewer gillrakers, 14-16 vs. 16-18 (Ref. 188, 28136). Other pellonulines lack saw-like teeth at the sides of the lower jaw (Ref. 188).
