Operculum with fenestrated inner face and convex pos- terodorsal edge. Dorsal edge of operculum continuing on the laminar ridge of dorsal operculum process. Three or more rows of teeth in the oral jaws; no teeth in vomer; 21–25 gill rakers on the lower branch. First dorsal fin co- incident with the posterior end of the pelvic fins; six or more interdorsal bones in continuous series. Small body scales (15 dorsal scales) with smooth posterior border. Three rows of subocular scales; scales also present on the interoperculum and between the anterior rays of the anal fin, but absent in the second dorsal fin. Posterior margin of body scales lined with a row of melanophores giving a very dark appearance to the specimens.
