C. patoca is illustrated by Day (1878: Pl. 182, Fig. 4) with spinules extending from the eyes  to the D; in none of our 11 specimens of C. laticeps do the spinules extend even ½ the distance from eyes to D.“ (Smith, M.M., Jahr?, S. 900)

"Body grayish above, whitish below, with noumerous large pale spots forming reticulated pattern and four broad dark cross bands on back, as follows: first on interorbital, second on middle of back to pectoral base, third from base of dorsal to nearly base of anal, and fourth on caudal peduncle; caudal blackish distally; all other fins pale."
