Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 1; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 4-5; Spine anali 0; Raggi anali molli: 4; Vertebre: 20. A large median and two small lateral oval caruncles immediately in front of origin of dorsal fin (Ref. 13608). Branchiostegal rays: 6 (Ref. 36494).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Males dwarfed, becoming parasitic on females. Maximum size of free-living males is 1.05 cm (Ref. 4494). Females are oviparous, with planktonic larvae (Ref. 36494). Eggs are presumably contained in floating gelatinous rafts (Ref. 36494 ).
