Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 3; Anal soft rays: 3. Metamorphosed females distinguished by the following characteristics: escal bulb without distal prolongation or filaments;, absence of posterior and anterior appendages; stout, tapering filament on each side of upper part of escal bulb, each one to 1.5 times diameter of bulb; 0-2 minute conical papillae below each lateral filament; undivided primary stem of barbell, length 20-32% SL, distal end divided into a pair of short branches, each with lateral series of 3-4 long filaments, decreasing in length distally and gradually continuing as a cluster of stalked photophores on tip and medial side of each branch; each filament with distal series of internal photophores; length of proximal ang longest filaments 35-65% SL; small branch with internal photophores in cleft between pair of primary branches; dense concentration of subdermal pigment on caudal peduncle of parasitic males; parasitic males with pointed sphenotic spines (Ref. 86949).
