Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12-14; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 8 - 9. Snout somewhat pointed, dorsal profile of head moderately sloped. Preorbital bone slightly narrower than eye diameter. Preopercular notch and knob poorly developed. Scale rows on back rising obliquely above lateral line. Generally yellow, darker on back, grading to whitish ventrally with a series of seven or eight narrow, blue, longitudinal stripes on the sides, a large blackish spot on the lateral line below the anterior portion of the soft dorsal rays, and blue spots and broken lines on the head.
