Morphology | Morphometrics
Redescribed and found different from its congeners by the following characters: gold sheen or yellowish silver color when fresh (vs. steel-blue with metallic sheen); posterior margin of maxilla reaching or extending beyond a vertical through hind eye margin (vs. not extending); pectoral fin slightly longer than snout (vs. slightly shorter than snout); tip of pectoral fin clearly extending beyond dorsal outline when vertically orientated (vs. not reaching dorsal outline); gill rakers absent or reduced to stiff ossified structures (vs. well developed, spinelike); first anal fin spine situated below the 40th-43rd dorsal fin ray (vs. below 35th-39th in L. pantului and 35th-40th in L. savala; precaudal vertebrae 42-43 (vs. 35-39 in pantului and 36-40 in savala); larger sizes attained 882-1200 mm TL (vs. less than 800 mm TL) (Ref. 58329).
