  A robust species that is a uniform brownish-black or black (some have suggested that this species has conspicuous black markings on the underside of the body – these are more obvious in juvenile individuals). There is no anal fin, two small dorsal fins, both with dorsal spines (the first dorsal is smaller than the second). It has a short caudal peduncle, and there are patches of skin near the base of the dorsal fins that have no denticles.
