Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 12-13; Anal soft rays: 7. Recognized by three white spots (Ref. 48635). Bony part of illicium approximately 1/2 length of 2nd dorsal spine; esca bulbous with 8-10 club-shaped tentacles.

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabit outer reef slopes (Ref. 1602). Benthic (Ref. 58302). Oviparous. Eggs are bound in ribbon-like sheath or mass of gelatinous mucus called 'egg raft' or 'veil' (Ref. 6773).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5005   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01995 (0.00906 - 0.04395), b=3.01 (2.83 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.8   ±0.7 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Fec assumed to be > 10,000).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
