Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 13. This species is distinguished by the following characters: no tentacle on dorsoposterior surface of the eye; upper lip is constricted at premaxillary symphysis, less than half maximum lip width; in males, first dorsal-fin spines elongate, reaching back to middle of second dorsal fin; anterior nares with a low rim and not darkly pigmented; nape without membranous crest or ridge; without gular spots; scales on dorsum are narrowly outlined with black, without spots; along mid-side of pale body are 9 oval to rounded dusky spots, spots alternate in size between large and small; ctenoid scales laterally on trunk posterior to appoximately below midpoint of second dorsal fin, cycloid anteriorly; naked prepelvic region; lateral scales 41-46; pectoral-fin rays 21-23; males with pelvic fins dusky while whitish in females (Ref. 103856).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00724 (0.00324 - 0.01618), b=3.01 (2.82 - 3.20), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
