Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 5-7; Anal soft rays: 4. Characterized by having escal morphology: esca with a stout, internally pigmented appendage, usually bearing a compressed papilla and 2 tapering filaments on distal tip; several small tapering filaments along posterior margin of anterior escal appendage; papilla and filaments of anterior escal appendage unpigmented; rounded or truncated terminal escal papilla with a distal streak of pigment; unpigmented, unbranched tapering posterior escal appendage as long as or shorter than escal bulb; absence of lateral and anterolateral appendages; relatively short and broad subopercle, without indentation on posterodorsal margin; length of ventral fork of opercle 25.2-32.2% SL; ratio of lengths of the dorsal and ventral forks of opercle 0.52-0.59; absence of epibranchial teeth; presence of teeth on pharyngobranchial II; upper jaw teeth 20-37, lower jaw teeth 22-48; teeth on vomer 4-7; dorsal fin rays 5-7; anal fin rays 4; pectoral fin rays 17-19; head length 35.0-46.2% SL; head depth 36.3-48.8% SL; premaxilla length 25.0-35.0% SL; length of lower jaw 38.3-50.0% SL; length of illicium 19.1-28.3% SL (Ref. 86949).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Larvae are epipelagic, young and adults are mesopelagic or bathypelagic (Ref. 47377). Minimum depth from Ref. 58018.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [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):  4.1   ±0.7 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (36 of 100) .
