Character: Body compressed, belly with usually 15 or 16 (rarely 14) prepelvic and 6 to 9 (usually 7 or 8) postpelvic scutes; total number of scutes 21 to 24 (usually 22 or 23) keeled scutes from isthmus to anus. Maxilla very long, reaching at least halfway along pectoral fin and to pelvic fin base in adults; first supra-maxilla absent; lower jaw slender. Lower gill rakers on first gill arch 17 to 19 (rarely 20); with serrae on the inner edge in distinct clumps. Dorsal-fin origin slightly anterior to body midpoint. Anal fin relatively long, with iii unbranched and 29 to 37 (usually 31 to 35) branched fin rays, its origin just posterior to vertical through base of posteriormost dorsal-fin ray. A dark blotch behind upper part of gill opening, sometimes joined to dark saddle on nape. 
Habitat: Presumably schooling, mostly inshore and perhaps tolerating estuarine conditions. Feeds on diatoms when young and prawn larvae, copepods and cypris when larger. 
Distribution: Broadly distributed in tropical and subtropical waters of Indo-Pacific, from coasts of Pakistan, India, Myanmar and south of Penang; apparently not yet found in Gulf of Oman or the Persian Gulf; Malaysia, Indonesia north to Taiwan, no records from Papua N
