Dorsal spines (total): 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 10; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 9; Vertebrae: 27. This species is distinguished by the following characters: absence of head and preopercular canals; large papilla replace pores, generally for pores B, C, E and F; pore locations G and H with or without large papilla; 28-30 scales in lateral series; scales cycloid anteriorly, becoming ctenoid with ctenii increasing in size posteriorly. Body with 4 mottled, wide brown-orange bars separated by narrower white bars, cheek whitish with 5 more or less circular blotches of orange, outlined in dark brown and a black spot on ventral operculum (Ref. 95673).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00617 (0.00281 - 0.01352), b=3.08 (2.89 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±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) .
