Short description Morfología | Morfometría

Espinas dorsales (total): 5 - 12; Radios blandos dorsales (total): 2; Espinas anales 14-17; Radios blandos anales: 125 - 145; Vértebra: 225 - 239. Presence of palatine and dentary teeth in two or more rows. Numerous dorsal spines. Small specimens are pale tan or pale bluish gray, large specimens are dark brown (Ref. 37108).

Biología     Glosario (por ej. epibenthic)

Benthopelagic (Ref. 58302) and epibenthic (Ref. 58426). Not uncommon in depths around 180 m off Iceland and Greenland. Individuals with nearly ripe eggs have been found in late autumn off Iceland. Mostly found at depths well below 200 m, but enters slightly shallower water on Grand Banks in Canada (Ref. 7251). Feeds primarily on sea anemones (Ref. 4449).
