Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10 - 11. Serrapinnus tocantinensis is distinguisged from its congeners by the elongation of the unbranched dorsal and pelvic-fin rays into filaments in mature males. It differs further from S. sterbai by the absence of a continuous mid-lateral black stripe extending from the opercular region to the caudal-peduncle spot. It can be separated from other congeners by having the following characters: 9 to 11 cusps in the premaxillary teeth (vs. 5 in S. microdon and S. potiguar, 7 in S. aster, 7 to 9 in S. calliurus, S. heterodon, S. kriegi, S. micropterus, S. notomelas and S. piaba and 10 to 12 in S. gracilis and S. littoris); dentary teeth without expanded cusps forming a sharp cutting edge (vs. dentary teeth with expanded cusps forming a sharp cutting edge in S. heterodon); hyaline dorsal fin (vs. with a proximal black blotch in S. notomela; and black spot absent on the posteroventral region of the abdomen (vs. present in S. kriegi) (Ref. 96959).
