Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 5; Raggi anali molli: 4. Distinguishing characteristics of metamorphosed female: length of illicium 30-44% SL; each primary branch of distal escal appendage unbranched, single side branch emerging from posterior margin at varying distances from base; total length of escal appendage 18% SL in 3.2 cm specimens, 59-214% SL in 5.9-9.2 cm specimens; length of distal escal appendage 5% SL in 3.2 cm specimens, 15-34% SL in 5.9-9.2 cm specimens; side branches cylindrical or slightly tapering toward blunt tip; distal appendage covered with dermal spinules, except for tips (Ref. 86949).
