(total): 17 - 19;
soft rays: 7 - 9. This species differs from C. spilurus and C. cutteri in having the secondary pored scales on caudal fin not forming rows (vs. forming rows); the rostral end of maxilla is convex (vs. notched or concave); first neural spine slanting rostrad instead of caudad; with 3 (vs. 2) dorsal elements between first two epineural spines; a spinous anterodorsal process on first dorsal pterygiophore present (vs. absent) (Ref. 74403).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5625 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01585 (0.00598 - 0.04201), b=2.99 (2.76 - 3.22), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (14 of 100) .
