soft rays: 10;
Vertebrae: 24. Crenidens indicus differs from Crenidens crenidens by the following characters: scale rows between the 10th dorsal-spine base and lateral line (41/2 vs. 51/2-61/2 in C. crenidens); gill rakers in the lower arch (10-12 vs. 9-10 in C. crenidens); dark spot located dorsally in the pectoral-fin axil (present vs. none in C. crenidens); body relatively deeper body 2.13-2.34 in SL vs. slender body (2.42-2.93 in SL for C. crenidens) (Ref. 94712).
