Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 0; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 18. Pectoral fin rays usually 17; trunk rings 11; tail rings 30-35; spines long and sharp, spine above eye equal in length or longer than eye diameter, perpendicular to snout; nose-spine sharp, angled forward 45° to snout, anterior spines on superior tail longer than spaces between them (Ref. 42735).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Found on the continental shelf (Ref. 75154). Probably inhabiting more weedy areas (Ref. 42735). Maximum length is based on a straight-line length measurement from upper surface (ignoring spines) of first trunk ring, to tip of tail (Ref. 42735). Ovoviviparous (Ref. 205). The male carries the eggs in a brood pouch which is found under the tail (Ref. 205).
