Morphology | Morphometrics
soft rays: 6 - 7. This species is distinguished from its congeners by the following set of characters (with modal values given in parentheses): pectoral-fin rays 15-16 (15); pored lateral-line scales 42-44 (43); scale rows in longitudinal series 42-46 (45) and between lateral line and base of 6th dorsal-fin spine 4 (3 full-sized size plus 1 half-sized); interorbital scales extending from the mid-orbit level to anterior margin of orbit; scales on ventral surface of the lower jaw extending anteriorly onto posterior portion of dentary. Colouration: head and body pinkish to reddish; with a longitudinal yellow stripe from snout (crossing eye) extending to caudal fn base; caudal fin upper lobe yellowish, lower lobe reddish, with several light bands on central portion and several small reddish (brownish when preserved) blotches on dorsal margin near base (Ref. 123213).
Collected by bottom trawl (Ref. 123213).
