Spine dorsali (totale): 8 - 9; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 20-22; Spine anali 2-3; Raggi anali molli: 16 - 17. Diagnosis: chest fully scaled (Ref. 81654). No spots on pectoral fins, spot posteriorly on gill cover small or absent; scutes tend to be dusky or blackish; caudal fin yellow; young with broad blackish bars on body (Ref. 13442).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

A pelagic (Ref. 26340) schooling species usually found in offshore reefs (Ref. 9710). Juveniles are encountered along shores of sandy beaches, also over muddy bottoms (Ref. 9626). May penetrate into brackish water and ascend rivers. Adults feed on fishes, shrimps, and other invertebrates (Ref. 3277). Often approach divers (Ref. 9710). Eggs are pelagic (Ref. 4233).
