from remaining neoplecostomines by having the canal plate firmly articulated to the preopercle, and by a series of
sexually-dimorphic features of hypertrophied odontodes of adult males, giving the fish a hispid appearance. |
Distinguished from other Hemipsilichthys species by the exposed lateral process of cleithrum above pectoral fin insertion very reduced in size, never passing the origin of the pectoral fin spine; and by the arrangement of the hypertrophied odontodes on the lateral margin of head, which are longer posteriorly and slightly turned backwards.
