Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 0; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 14-20; Taggstrålar i analfenan 0; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 24 - 30. LS/D 2.9-4.3;LS/PD 10.8-15.5. Pectoral fin longer or at least as long as head. Globular swelling on chin reduced. Base of dorsal fin 0.51-0.78 x of the anal fin base.
