Counts and measurements on the external morphology of the specimen was carried out by a team of Japanese and Indonesian researchers, providing the most comprehensive data on the morphology of this species. All available data on morphology of L. menadonesis is compiled together to provide insights into the biology and taxonomy of extant coelacanths.
