Classification / Names Common names | Synonyms | Catalog of Fishes (gen., sp.) | ITIS | CoL | WoRMS | Cloffa

Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Lophiiformes (Anglerfishes) > Himantolophidae (Footballfishes)
Etymology: Himantolophus: Greek, himas or himantos = leather strap, thong or leash (referring to the thick leathery illicium) + Greek, lopho or lophio = crest or tuft (referring to the baited illicium projecting from the head) (Ref. 86949);  stewarti: We are pleased to name this species in honor of Andrew Stewart of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongerewa (Te Papa), Wellington, for his years of service to the world ichthyological community and for his many published contributions to ichthyology (Ref. 88962).

Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range Ecology

Marine; bathydemersal; depth range 400 - 1413 m (Ref. 88962).   Deep-water; 47°S - 48°S, 148°E - 149°E

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Tasman Sea: South Tasman Rise. Himantolophus stewarti is probably everywhere sympatric with its sister species H. appelii, both restricted to the southern parts of the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific oceans below 27°S and extending into the Southern Ocean. Most of the known material was taken off New Zealand and Tasmania, with scattered records from off southern Australia, the central and western Indian Ocean, off South Africa, the Falkland Islands, and off the southern tip of Chile. A large proportion of the known material (70%) was collected with bottom trawls at depth between 400 and 1413 m. Others were taken with midwater gear fished open between the surface and approximately 990 m, some at maximum depths well off the bottom (e.g., SAM 31615, 150 mm, maximum depth reached by gear 990 m, over a bottom depth of 2000 m) (Ref. 88962).

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

A species of the Himantolophus appelii group (as recognized by Bertelsen and Krefft, 1988), known only from females, distinguished from its sister-species, H. appelii, the only other member of this group, in having short distal and posterior escal appendages (Ref. 88962).
