Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 2; Anal spines: 0. This species is distinguished by the following characters: snout long. Slender, and sharply pointed, its length 43-48% HL, 0.5-0.7 into orbit diameter; normally no scales on ventral aspects of head except along anterolateral margin of snout; naked areas dorsally behind anterolateral margins of snout confined to narrow strips; anterolateral edges of snout not supported by bone (median and lateral processes of nasal bone not united); ventral light organ very small, short, situated just before anus; scales large, fairly deciduous, spinules short, imbricate, aligned in 8 to 10, slightly divergent rows; overall color is gray-brown, with a bluish band around trunk; the underside of the head dusky to densely punctuated; the orbit rim black; the fins blackish to dusky (Ref. 1371, 36027).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Feeds on deep-sea decapod crustaceans, gastropods, and polychaetes (Ref. 1371). Probably taken occasionally in by-catch of commercially important fishes (Ref. 1371).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00302 (0.00129 - 0.00709), b=3.12 (2.93 - 3.31), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.46 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (48 of 100) .
