Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 5.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 90102)
soft rays: 15. Pale brown with yellow-edged dark brown stripe connecting eyes and continuing from rear edge of eye to upper edge of opercle' large dark brown spot just above pectoral fin and 1-2 smaller spots just above (below first 5 dorsal spines), about 9 dark brown bars or vertically aligned pair of spots on side of body, and bluish abdomen. Fin deeply notched; cirrus present on posterior rim of anterior nostril; last lateral-line tube below 8th or 9th dorsal spines; body depth at anal-fin origin about 4.5-5.8 in SL (Ref. 90102).

Oviparous. Eggs are demersal and adhesive (Ref. 205), and are attached to the substrate via a filamentous, adhesive pad or pedestal (Ref. 94114). Larvae are planktonic, often found in shallow, coastal waters (Ref. 94114).
