soft rays: 8. This species is distinguished from its congeners by the following set of characters: cephalic
sensory-pore system always lacking the IT, usually the POP, but occasionally the POP is present on both or only one side of the head; dorsal/anal-fin formula of 8/8, some branched pectoral-fin rays and usually 15 rays, pectoral-fin base with 2 spots; preural centrum without dark spot; first dorsal fin may be filamentous; ventral postanal spots 6; male genital papilla not fimbriate (Ref. 108789).
