Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 6; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 4; Vertebrae: 16 - 18. Pale in color but with black tips on pelvic fins (Ref. 6612). Very small ventral fins and low vertebral count. Cephalic lateral line scale counts: preopercular 2-4; subopercular 4-6; dorsolateral branch of subopercular 4-6; supraorbital 7-10. Disk subglobose, with ventral surface flat; trapezoidal in outline. Illicial cavity very large. Lower jaw projecting relative to upper jaw. Dorsal surface of rostrum broad, flat; anterior margin slightly concave; no enlarged median spine. Gill rakers formed as triangular plates with tiny teeth at distal angle. Fins weak, ventral fins extremely reduced in size. Tail relatively short and slender. Esca with rounded, paired, ventral lobes and a broad, relatively low dorsal lobe. Skin translucent, flabby. Entire body covered with small tubercles with slender spines giving it s semi velvety appearance (Ref. 40825).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 123201): 2.4 - 9.2, mean 6.6 °C (based on 615 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804):  PD50 = 0.5078   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01995 (0.00770 - 0.05171), b=2.96 (2.73 - 3.19), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.6 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.).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
