Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 1.6 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 5289)
soft rays: 7 - 8;
Vertebrae: 26. Base of pectoral fin with two sharply defined, circular dark spots, clearly separated, of about equal size; pectoral spots intensely pigmented, more so than trunk bars; head (dorsally) and nape with large dark spots, usually arranged transversely and discontinuous along dorsal midline; trunk with dark, discretely outlined, vertical bars, some of which are almost always irregularly broken into elongate, oval or oblong shaped marks on the anterolateral portion of the body; trunk bars extending ventrally below midside of body and often discontinuous over midline on anterior part of trunk; scale pockets on trunk not pigmented (Ref. 5289).

Estimates of some properties based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00891 (0.00427 - 0.01860), b=3.08 (2.91 - 3.25), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 3.0 ±0.3 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
