Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 2.7 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 12769); 2.8 cm SL (female)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Differs from all congeners by having the following characters: second ctenactinium with eight serrae in adult males; 28 caudal vertebrae with no sexual dimorphism in the number of precaudal vertebrae; 28 or more teeth on paradentary; all males are sinistral (Ref. 90869).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Fertilization is internal and eggs are attached to the substrate via adhesive filaments (Ref. 43413).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Pelvic fins in males are modified to form part of a complex thoracic clasping organ (Ref. 205).
