Etymology: Andriashevia: Because of Anatoly Petrovich Andriashev, Russian naturalist, 1910.
Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range
Marine; bathydemersal; depth range 10 - 1025 m (Ref. 11954). Deep-water
Northwest Pacific: Pacific coast of Japan.
Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 19.3 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 11954)
Apparently demersal and associated with large red gorgonian corals, such as Paragorgia. Stomach contents reveal a diet of crustaceans and probably encrusting invertebrates that are hunted among coral branches and the hard substratum of their habitat (Ref. 11954). Minimum depth from Ref. 58018.
