Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 12; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 15-17; Espinas anales 3; Radios blandos anales: 7 - 8. Scale rows immediately below lateral line oblique (Ref. 26938). Usual color phase dull silvery, the fins largely gray; no black pigment below upper margin of preopercle; the dorsal and caudal fins of subadults and the back above a line from dorsal base to lower margin of caudal fin are often blackish (Ref. 13442).
