soft rays: 10;
Vertebrae: 41 - 43. This species is distinguished by the following characters: D 17, of moderate height, no filamentous rays in both sexes, penultimate ray usually longest in males (19.7-21.0% SL), fourth or fifth ray longest in females (14.7-17.3% SL), but nearly same length as those at middle of fin, 13.9-20.1% SL in males and females, distal margin nearly straight in both sexes, only slightly concave in males, very slightly convex in females; caudal peduncle length 15.8-17.9% SL; distance from anus to anal fin origin 2.5-3.8 in distance from pelvic fin origin to anus; moderately large head, length 30.5-32.6% SL; large eye with orbital diameter 9.7-11.4% SL; snout length 7.3-8.2% SL; upper jaw length 14.3-16.0% SL; pectoral fin length 20.8-23.5% SL; pelvic fin moderately large, length 27.2-31.3% SL; 6 or 7 scales between anus and anal fin origin; body brown above and white to silvery below with dark edged brown saddles dorsally, becoming red ventrally; dorsal fin is covered with reddish spots, most slightly smaller than pupil of eye, in about four more or less horizontal rows, those posterobasally yellow in males (Ref. 105374).
