Etymology: Lophiodes: Greek, lophos = crest + Greek, suffix oides = similar to (Ref. 45335).
Environment / Climate / Range
Marine; bathydemersal; depth range 347 - 860 m (Ref. 5263). Deep-water; 9°C - 11°C (Ref. 5263); 20°N - 7°N
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 40.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 58471); common length : 23.4 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 5263)
Commonly occurred on dead coral Lophelia pertusa rubble and seemed to prefer this habitat that is deep and difficult to sample probably explains how this species escaped detection (Ref. 58471).

Estimates of some properties based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278
): 4.5 ±0.8 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 to high vulnerability (49 of 100) .
