Description Dorsal-fin rays VI+I,8; anal-fin rays I,8; all pectoral fins badly damaged, some unbroken rays
branched; pectoral-fin rays 16 or 17; pelvic-fin rays I,5, all rays broken, but short 5th ray present at base of 4th
ray; lateral and transverse scales missing in all specimens; a few cycloid scales remaining on middle of ventral
surface of abdomen, no scales or pockets on breast; dorsal, anal, and caudal fins broken in all specimens, extent
of elongation of spines not known; urogenital papillae of males and females fimbriate (Fig. 91); front of head
sloping with an angle of about 65° from horizontal axis; mouth slanted obliquely upwards, forming an angle of
about 55° to horizontal axis of body; maxilla extending to center of pupil of eye; anterior naris tube short, not
reaching anterior margin of upper lip; gill opening extending forward to posterior edge of preoperculum; cephalic
sensory-canal pore system lacking all pores, and papilla pattern obscure. General body shape is shown in Fig. 90.
Measurements from 10.1 mm SL holotype and 8 paratypes, 8.5–10.1 mm SL: head length 32.7 (32.5–35.5,
33.9); origin of first dorsal fin 41.1 (37.4–42.9, 40.2); origin of second dorsal fin 61.9 (57.1–61.9, 59.0); origin of
anal fin 62.4 (58.9–65.6, 61.1); caudal-peduncle length 21.8 (20.8–25.3, 22.8); caudal-peduncle depth 11.4 (10.4–
12.8, 11.5); body depth 19.3 (18.5–20.3, 19.5); eye diameter 11.4 (9.4–13.1, 10.1); snout length 4.9 (4.2–6.3, 5.3). [details]
