This marine creature, which is known as Kabayo-kabayo sa kabanawgan in Cebuano dialect, has maximum height of 17.2 centimeters and is not sexually dimorphic by length with maturity size of 98 to 132 millimeters standard length. Incidental catch, overfishing and holdfast destruction which likely to occur through nonselective commercial shrimp trawling are among the threats to this kind of species.
