Read full entry
Eucinostomus lefroyi is a member of the family Gerreidae. The Eucinostomus genus is distinguished from other members of the family Gerreidae by the interhaemal cone, an unusual cone-shaped structure formed from the first two anal pterygiophores that encloses the posterior end of the air bladder (Matheson et al. 1984). In general, mojarras are small- to medium-sized silvery compressed fishes.
