Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 6.4 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 104856)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 4 - 7; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-12; Anal spines: 1; Anal soft rays: 18 - 26. This species is distinguished and differs from L. sicculus by the following characters: Labidesthes vanhyningi have the anterolateral processes of the posttemporals shorter than width of the base (vs. L. sicculus having the processes longer than width of base); with a midlateral stripe that does not taper, usually expanding, to insertion of pectoral fin in advance of the first dorsal-fin (vs. tapering to insertion of pectoral fin in advance of first dorsal fin); a ratio of thoracic length to abdominal length less than 2 (vs. greater than 2) (Ref. 104856).
