Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 11-12; Anal soft rays: 57 - 59; Vertebrae: 74 - 76. This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: A 57-59; branchiostegal rays 14; gill rakers 4 + 10-11, total 14-15; vertebrae - abdominal 30-32, caudal 44-45, total 74-76; photophores - IP 13-14, PV 18-19, IV 31-32, VAV 12-13, AC 37-39 + 2, IC 83-86, the last two AC photophores grouped, separation less than half that of preceding photophores; dorsal-fin origin closer to the snout than caudal-fin base, pre-dorsal-fin length 45.2-47.3% SL (Ref. 121634).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = No PD50 data   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00102 (0.00046 - 0.00225), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
