Notes

Very long tapered body. Usually golden brown in color. Lower rays of pectoral fins free and stronger than upper ones. No prominent spines on head. Pelvic fins reduced to two rays each and below head. Easily distinguished from other ophidiids by the large length to body depth ratio and the free pectoral fin rays.
