Etymology: Kathetostoma: Greek, kathetos, -on = lime + Greek, stoma = mouth (Ref. 45335);  binigrasella: The specific name binigrasella, from the Latin bi for ‘two’, nigra for ‘dark’ and sella for ‘saddle’ refers to the broad dark brown saddle-like bands dorsally on the body that are obvious features distinguishing this species from its New Zealand congener.

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Marine; benthopelagic; depth range 10 - 500 m (Ref. 86516), usually 100 - 300 m (Ref. 86516).   Temperate

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 15-17; Anal soft rays: 14 - 16; Vertebrae: 30 - 31. Head and body broad, head width 1.2-1.7 times its length, covered with tiny blunt knobs in juveniles to almost smooth in adults; mouth with several prominent canines between smaller canines; chin smooth; ventral margin of preopercle with four spine-like processes; anterior end of isthmus with a pair of prominent forward directed spines; prominent cleithral spine sheathed with skin above pectoral fin base; 17-19 gill rakers on first arch in the form of patches of fine teeth, patches broad, about six to ten teeth across patches, not in distinct rows, innermost teeth rather short; dorsal fin of moderate length, its base 43-66% of predorsal length; pelvic fins large, their length 23-28% SL; body whitish below usually with two broad, vertical, dark-brown, variously distinct bands or saddles across back, most distinct in juveniles and small adults (Ref. 86516).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5020   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.4   ±0.7 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  High vulnerability (57 of 100) .
