soft rays: 5. Occiput yellowish; 6 black broad bands from occiput to the base of caudal fin; tip of caudal fin rays tinged red; lower lobe of caudal fin more blackish than the upper lobe; belly pale white; fins with black bands: pectoral (5), pelvic (3), dorsal (2-3), anal (2), and caudal (3). Closer insertion of dorsal fin to the base of caudal fin than the tip of snout, insertion of dorsal fin behind the origin of pelvic fin. Pelvic fins short, about 3/4 as long as pectoral fin.
