Origin of anal fin behind end of base of dorsal fin; base of adipose fin directly over of slightly in advance of end of base of anal fin. Dn directed anterolaterally, small and ill-defined in females, distinctly larger and sharply delineated in males, tapering downward in between nostril and eye where it meets and often overlaps with dorsal, attenuated extension of Vn. Main bulk of Vn at anteroventral aspect of orbit. PLO distinctly nearer to lateral line than to base of pectoral fin, but may be midway in juveniles. VLO midway between lateral line and base of ventral fin or a little higher. SAO on a straight line, sometimes SAO2 slightly in front of or behind line through centers of SAO1 and SAO3; SAO3 at lateral line. AOa1abruptly elevated, sometimes directly above AOa2; last AOa also elevated. Pol in contact with lateral line. AOp1 sometimes over end of base of anal fin. First three Prc evenly spaced, forming a gentle arc; Prc3-Prc4 interspace enlarged, with Prc4 about 1.5 times its diameter below midlateral line. A vertically elongated, roughly rectangular luminous scale at PLO
