soft rays: 7 - 9;
Vertebrae: 26. This species is distinguished from its congeners by the following characters: cephalic sensory-pore system lacking only the IT pore (pattern 2); only some pectoral-fin rays are branched; pectoral-fin base have 1 or 2 prominent dark spots; dorsal/anal-fin formula usually 8/8; without occipital spots (Ref. 108789).
