Espinas dorsales (total): 2; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 34-36; Espinas anales 0; Radios blandos anales: 29 - 32. Adults are brown, with or without many prominent white spots on body and head; caudal fin black with obscure curved median white bar and two indistinct white basal spots (Ref. 13442). Males are readily distinguished from females of about same size by the larger spines on caudal peduncle and by orange color of patch of setae anterior to the peduncular spines on males (Ref. 13442).
