Character: Dorsal fin with XI spines and 13 to 15 rays, the third spine longest, its length contained 2.6 to 3.0 times in head length and longer than the longest dorsal-fin ray, the interspinous membranes deeply incised; anal fin with III spines and 8 rays, the second and third spines subequal; pectoral-fin rays 17 or 18, the fin almost transparent; pectoral-fin length contained 1.7 to 2.2 times, pelvic-fin length contained 2.1 to 2.8 times in head length; caudal fin convex to moderately rounded. Lateral-body scales distinctly ctenoid, without auxiliary scales; lateral-line scales 52 to 66; lateral-scale series 102 to 120. 
Habitat: Adults of this deepwater species are known from depths of 80 to 383 m; juveniles have been found in 18 to 20 m. E. radiatus is apparently rare. 
Distribution: E. radiatus occurs from the Red Sea to Japan. We have examined specimens or seen photographs from the Red Sea, Aden, Reunion, Mauritius, Chagos, Gulf of Oman, India, Sri Lanka, northwestern Australia, Taiwan, Japan, Papua New Guinea, and Japan. 
Utility: Apparently of some commercial importance in Japan.
