Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 13;
Vertebrae: 36. Diagnosis: can be distinguished from its congeners by the following combination of characters: deep body (depth at
dorsal-fin origin 21.0-26.8 % SL, at anus 17.1-18.2 % SL); deep caudal peduncle (8.4-9.3 % SL); narrow head (width 72-82 % HL); short dorsal-fin spine (14.6-15.8 % SL) shorter than depth of body immediately ventral; short pectoral-fin (20.6-
23.9 % SL); thoracic adhesive apparatus with U-shaped median depression opening caudally; dorsal-fin spine with 6-7 serrae posteriorly; pectoral-fin spine with 8-10 serrae posteriorly; nasal barbel extending to middle of orbit; skin densely tuberculate, cream mid-dorsal stripe, extending from behind dorsal-fin base to caudalfin base; and distinctly pale nuchal plate elements (Ref. 103415).
