Specimen has a flattened and deteriorated right side; left side body preserved by intact scales, which are thin, ctenoid
(small spines on edges), semicircular, in overlapping position in lines, and still flexible.
It is a small fish (typically <10 cm fork length), with ctenoid
scales, an incomplete lateral line, soft and spiny rays, and a small, slightly sub-terminal mouth (Wydoski and Whitney 1979; Scheerer and Jacobs 2006).
In thin sections, dolomite cements cause mainly ctenoid
dolomite encrustation around the surface of detrital grains or partly epidermis oolite formed by engulfing quartz grains (Figures 7(d) and 7(f)).
Body covered with small or moderate sized ctenoid
scales, those of cheeks and opercles in 2-3 rows all cycloid except for occasional ctenoid
scale posteriorly; lateral line scales simple.
He distinguished four major types of scales in the Teleostei: cycloid, ctenoid
(with three subtypes), crenate, and spinoid (ibid., pp.
Dorsal-fin spines XXII or XXIII (XXIII), rays 14-17 (16); anal-fin spines III, rays 8 or 9 (9); pectoral-fin un-branched rays 9-10 (10), branched rays 6-8 (8), total pectoral rays 16-18 (18); pelvic-fin spines 1; pelvic-fin rays 5; total caudal-fin rays 38-41 (39); dorsal segmented caudal rays 8; ventral segmented caudal rays 8; dorsal procurrent caudal rays 11-13 (12); ventral procurrent caudal rays 11-12 (11); total vertebrae 26, rarely 27; anterior gill rakers 28-35 (33); posterior gill rakers 21-26 (22); scales ctenoid
; lateral line complete and pronounced, lateral-line pores 41-51 (45); scales in lateral series on midline 56-68 (62).
Scales on body progressively larger posteriorly, scale rows irregular, especially anteriorly; cheek fully covered with small scales; opercle naked except three scales at upper anterior corner; scales cycloid on head and anterodorsally on body, ctenoid
posteriorly; scales ventrally on abdomen and chest cycloid; cycloid scales on pectoral-fin base; no scales on fins except for about three rows at base of caudal fin, smaller than last row on caudal peduncle.
