Scutellum, dorsal view, showing emarginate
posterior edge (arrow) in B.
Rear margin of metanotum weakly convex, slightly emarginate
Leaves 4-13 cm long; petiole 10-37 mm long; pulvinus 0.4-1.6 mm diam; rachis 0.6-1.4 cm long, extrafloral nectaries 1, ovoid, claviform and fusiform, sessile or shortly stipitate, located between the proximal pair of leaflets, 1.2-1.6 x 0.4-0.9 mm; leaflets 2 pairs, papyraceous, abaxial surface pubescent and adaxial surface puberulent, the distal 60-80 x 25-37 mm, the proximal 22-60 x 10-35 mm, ellipticoblanceolate, lanceolate-elliptic, obovate, ovate, venation brochidodromous, nervures 7-13 pairs, apex emarginate
, short mucronate and obtuse, base cuneate, oblique, obtuse, subcordate, margin revolute, ciliated.
Paracheilinus piscilineatus Comic, 1987 from Mauritius also lacks filamentous extensions of the dorsal fin rays, but has a truncate to slightly emarginate
caudal fin and very different colouration (Fig.
oroquensis Brailovsky, shares the following characters: head wider than long, shorter than maximum length of pronotum; antennal segments II and III slender, not densely clothed with rigid setae; anterolateral margins of pronotum emarginate
; interocellar space shorter than 0.50; and antenniferous tubercle armed with short and stout spine.
brunneus from nearly all other members of the genus which generally have truncate, emarginate
, rhomboid, or lanceolate caudal fins.
b) Marginate seeds all have a bump at the side, close to the proximal end of the seed, but the size of the bump varies within one fruit and between plant specimens; emarginate
(smooth) seeds generally have a less pronounced bump.
the pelvic fins, which are loosely attached in the young, become lost; the limp skin encroaches more and more over the anterior ends of the dorsal and anal fins thus giving a low count of the rays except under dissection; the modified scales disappear; the character of the pectoral and caudal fins is changed from round to pointed in the former, and from round to broadly emarginate
in the latter; the yellow color and purplish spots change to a more somber brown as the adults attain greater size."
