Colour of holotype in alcohol pale yellowish, the scale edges dusky dorsally on body; an oblique rectangular blackish mark nearly as long as eye diameter at ventroposterior edge of orbit; dorsal part of snout and interorbital before the first predorsal scale dusky; a narrow dusky band on lips; first dorsal and paired fins translucent grey, the remaining fins faintly purplish.
