Etymology: Cryothenia: Greek, kryos = frost + Greek, adverbial particle, then, that denotes distance or remova (Ref. 45335);  amphitreta: Name from Greek, genus translates as 'from the cold' and specific epithet as 'an orifice with two openings', describing the interorbital-pit morphology that distinguishes it from C. peninsulae.

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species is distinguished by having its pelvic fins reaching only about halfway from the pelvic-fin base to anal origin, and the second dorsal-fin insertion notably advanced with respect to the anal-fin origin; cephalic lateral-line pores large, the fourth supraorbital canal pores open into a median, well-defined, depressed interorbital pit, divided medially by a slightly raised ridge; width of depressed interorbital region greater than the length, does not extend anteriorly beyond the third supraorbital canal pore, and with a few uniserial cycloid scales immediately anterior to it; the lining of the mouth, gill cavities, and peritoneum black (Ref. 58577).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00617 (0.00292 - 0.01304), b=3.19 (3.01 - 3.37), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)Family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.5 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):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
