It is characterized by a yellow anal fin, shorter dorsal and anal fin lobes and fewer anal fin rays (16 or 17 versus 17-19, usually 18) than the undescribed Caranx ZBK species. It was observed by PW in SãoTomé City fish market. The records mentioned in Afonso et al. (1999) could belong to either Caranx ZBK species.
