The body of metamorphosed females is moderately short, somewhat fusiform, its depth approximately 45–55% SL. The snout is blunt; the head extremely short (29.7–30.5% SL). The mouth is small, the opening almost horizontal, and the cleft extending slightly past the eye. The opercular opening is unusually large, 19.4–22.5% SL. The illicium length is 15.3–17.5% SL. The esca, remarkably similar to those of some species of Oneirodes, bears a stout, internally pigmented anterior escal appendage approximately as long as the length of the escal bulb; a pair of medial escal appendages, each consisting of a dense cluster of slender filaments, some slightly longer than length of the escal bulb, and each with a darkly pigmented distal tip; a small rounded terminal papilla, with a single terminal pigment spot; and a simple unpigmented filamentous posterior escal appendage somewhat longer than the length of the escal bulb.
The teeth in the jaws are slender, recurved, and all depressible, those in the lower jaw slightly larger than those of the upper jaw. The longest tooth in upper jaw measures 2.4–3.1% SL; the longest in lower jaw is 3.4–3.7% SL. There are 20–32 teeth in upper jaw and 20–31 in the lower jaw. There are 4–6 teeth on the vomer. The second and third pharyngobranchials are both well developed and toothed.
The following measurements are expressed in percent SL: head length 29.7–30.5; head width 25.5–29.1; head depth 33.7–36.6; least outside width between frontals 9.1–10.9; length of premaxilla 22.4–24.0; length of lower jaw 25.2–33.6; length of lower fork of opercle 19.7–22.5, upper fork 10.9–14.9; length of subopercle 8.6–11.3.
