Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 2; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 5-6; Taggstrålar i analfenan 0; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 4. Metamorphosed females of Bufoceratias wedli differ from those of Bufoceratias shaoi in having a much smaller esca and a longer illicium (83-225% standard length versus 26-40% standard length), and from those of Bufoceratias thele in having distinct, anterior, posterior, and lateral escal appendages (Ref. 51070).

Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Mesopelagic and bathypelagic near or on continental shelf (Ref. 6939). Males and larvae unknown (Ref. 51070), probably dwarfed, non-parasitic (Ref. 6939). Minimum depth from Ref. 6613.
