Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Dorsal-fin rays VI-I,8 (VI-I,7); anal-fin rays I,7; all dorsal- and anal-fin soft rays branched except
first, last ray branched to base; first dorsal-fin spine filamentous, extending back to base of third soft ray of second
dorsal fin of male holotype, not filamentous in female paratype; pectoral-fin rays 15, all unbranched, fin reaching
to second anal-fin ray base; pelvic fins joined by membrane only at extreme base, pelvic-fin membranes between
rays absent, pelvic-fin rays I,5; 4 (3) branches on 4th pelvic-fin ray; 2 (1) segments between consecutive branches
of 4th pelvic-fin ray, 5th pelvic-fin ray 15.9 (16.4%) of 4th ray, pelvic fin reaching to base of first anal-fin ray; 11
branched and 17 segmented caudal-fin rays; lateral scale rows 23, transverse scale rows 6, no scales on head,
nape, breast, pectoral-fin base, midline of abdomen, and wide areas along bases of dorsal fins; cephalic sensorycanal
pore system lacking only the IT pore (pattern 2); anterior oculoscapular canal with pores B’, single C, single
D, E, and F’, two preopercular-canal pores, N’ and O’; male urogenital papilla smooth with a blunt tip, reaching to
anal-fin spine; female urogenital papilla bulbous with short fingers distally; lower jaw slightly projecting, maxilla
extending beyond a vertical at posterior margin of pupil; body slender, front of head rounded with an angle of
about 70° from horizontal axis; mouth oblique, forming an angle of about 55° to horizontal axis of body; anterior
naris tube extending forward just past posterior edge of upper jaw; gill opening extending forward to a vertical
just behind back of eye. General body shape shown in Fig. 2.
Measurements (percentage of SL): (based on holotype and paratype 9.9–10.9 mm SL) head length 32.9 (33.3);
origin of first dorsal fin 37.9 (40.4); origin of second dorsal fin 57.0 (57.5); origin of anal fin 60.3 (60.6); caudalpeduncle
