Etymology: Paraliparis: Greek, para = the side of + Greek, liparis = fat (Ref. 45335); camilarus: The new species is named in honor of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Living Resources, CCAMLR, under whose auspices this species was collected. Thus the specific epithet camilarus (Ref. 90026). More on author: Stein.

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00468 (0.00221 - 0.00989), b=3.17 (2.98 - 3.36), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.6 ±0.5 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 to moderate vulnerability (31 of 100) .
