Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
W. Schwarzhans 2003Elongated large otoliths with the subtriangular
outline typical for the otoliths of genus Palaeogadus.
The predorsal angle is broad and not prominent
and is getting completely rounded in adult specimens.
The anterior and posterior tips are rounded. The
inner face is convex. The collum is rather wide and without
a pseudocolliculum. The ventral furrow is distinct
and very close to the ventral rim.
