Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 0; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 40-45; Espinas anales 0; Radios blandos anales: 35 - 36; Vértebra: 45 - 50. This species is distinguished from its congeners by the following set of characters: both jaws with narrow rows of stout, sharp, simple, recurved teeth; a moderate-sized gill opening which extends ventrally to pectoral rays 4-8; pelvic disk large 25-38% HL; cephalic pore pattern 2-6-7-1; most similar to C. lycopersicus and C. kamikawai, which are both distinguished from C. ovigerus by their broad bands of trilobed teeth (Ref. 91047).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

The holotype, a male, was found to carry developing eggs in its mouth (Ref. 6885). Two females were ripe with large yolked eggs 6-7 mm in diameter, while the male of 33.0 cm SL had enlarged testes. Two smallest and immature females examined (18.0-18.5 cm SL) had small ovaries with many small white eggs ca. 1 mm in diameter (Ref. 91047).
