Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 87-94; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 69 - 75; Vertebrae: 53 - 55. This species is characterized by the following set of characters: a relatively long lateral line ending below dorsal fin rays 19-26; dorsal fin rays 87-94, anal fin rays 69-75, precaudal vertebrae 15-16, total vertebrae 53-55 and total number of rakers on anterior gill arch 15-17 (3 long and 12-14 plates); longest gill raker 2.2-2.7% SL and snout to end of lateral line 48.0-56% SL; interorbital pore 1 and occipital pores 4 (Ref. 83453).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Benthopelagic at bathyal depth (Ref. 56809). Benthic (Ref. 58302). Shallowest depth range at about 250 m (Ref. 95664). Rare species (Ref. 34024). Reproductive strategy possibly similar to other members of this family featuring oviparity, with oval pelagic eggs floating in a gelatinous mass (Ref. 205).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 2.1 - 10.8, mean 7.9 (based on 460 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00407 (0.00158 - 0.01051), b=3.12 (2.89 - 3.35), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.6 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (39 of 100) .
