Actinopteri (ray-finned fishes) > Ovalentaria/misc (Various families in series Ovalentaria) > Embiotocidae (Surfperches)
Etymology: Ditrema: Greek, di = two + Greek, trema = hole (Ref. 45335);  temminckii: The subspecific name is in reference to the geographic distribution of the subspecies.  More on author: Bleeker.

Issue
More genetic evidence is needed to consider Ditrema temminckii pacificum Katafuchi & Nakabo, 2007 a separate species. Morphological details are given in the original description (Ref. 76763), and some genetic evidence in a wider study (Ref. 123766).

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 9 - 11; Dorsal soft rays (total): 20-23; Anal spines: 3; Anal soft rays: 25 - 27; Vertebrae: 35 - 39. This subspecies possess the following characters: D IX-XI (mode 9-10); 18-22 (mode 19) scales below lateral line; relatively long base of dorsal fin (43.1-51.7, mean 48.0% SL); anterior suborbital area with a black oblique band; black spot or black crescentic marking on posteroventral corner of the preopercle; no black spot, (rarely with a small dark spot) on the anterior part of preopercle; spinous portion of dorsal fin mostly with black distal margin; without black line along anal-fin base; pelvic fin with a black line along posterior margin of pelvic-fin spine (rarely a black line with a black spot on uppermost end, or two black lines), two white lines on first ray, and membrane between fourth and fifth rays (Ref. 76763)..

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults occur in sandy bottoms and rocky areas (Ref. 76763); also in areas with Sargassum (Ref. 559). Viviparous, female carries the developing young (Ref. 205).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae
