Classification / Names Common names | Synonyms | Catalog of Fishes (gen., sp.) | ITIS | CoL | WoRMS | Cloffa

Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Perciformes (Perch-likes) > Gobiidae (Gobies) > Amblyopinae
Etymology: Karsten: Named for Karsten E. Hartel, Curatorial Associate in Ichthyology at the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University (Ref. 43739).

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Marine; demersal; depth range 0 - 1122 m (Ref. 43739), usually 0 - 55 m (Ref. 43739).   Tropical; 12°N - 19°S, 117°E - 178°W

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Western Pacific: Fiji, Indonesia and the Philippines; probably more widely distributed.

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 4.8 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 43739)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 6; Dorsal soft rays (total): 46-51; Anal soft rays: 40 - 44; Vertebrae: 28 - 31. This species is distinguished by having spinous pterygiophore formula 3-123, 3-132, or 3-122 + 2. (here the 6th spine shares its interneural space with the 2 pterygiophores associated with the first 2 dorsal fin soft rays) (vs. 3-1221 or 3-12210 in other amblyopines); precaudal vertebrae 9 (vs. 10 ) (Ref. 43739).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected over mud and sand bottoms. Its small size and deep-dwelling habitat makes collection a difficult task (Ref. 43739).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00724 (0.00316 - 0.01662), b=2.98 (2.78 - 3.18), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (13 of 100) .
