Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 0; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 0; Espinas anales 0; Radios blandos anales: 0. A slender, dwarf catshark with 2 equal-sized dorsal fins and a long tape-like caudal fin (Ref. 5578). Grey-brown in color (Ref. 5578).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Found on the upper continental slope and outer shelf (Ref. 244). Feeds on small bony fishes, crustaceans and cephalopods (Ref. 244). Ovoviviparous (Ref. 50449), with 2 young in a litter (Ref. 244). Geographic or bathymetric segregation of populations by sex probably occurs as most specimens taken off Natal were male (Ref. 244).
