Cyanellus, and L. symmetricus, develop a pigmented blotch posteriorly in the soft dorsal fin (Plates 1 and 2). Also, discussed earlier is the development of primary and secondary bars of melanistic pigment laterally on the centrarchids. The numbers of primary bars and the presence or absence of secondary bars may aid in identifying young elassomatids or centrarchids (Table 5).
