Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: L m   ?   range ? - ? cm
Max length : 11.1 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 36121 )

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12-15; Anal spines : 0; Anal soft rays : 14 - 18; Vertebrae : 33 - 37. 9-10 tooth patches on the lower limb of the second gill arch; 10-13 AO photophores; 32-34 lateral line organs (Ref. 36121 ).
