    The bigeye trevally has a body shape similar to the giant trevally. However it has a slightly more pointed snout which is greater in length than eye diameter. All fins are similar to giant trevally fins with slight differences only in the soft ray numbers. Dorsal fin rays are 19-22; anal fin rays are 14-17; pelvic fin rays are 17-18. Caudal fin is strongly forked while the pectoral fin is falcate as in giant trevally. However, unlike the giant trevally, in this species the breast is completely covered with scales.
