Issue
More probably the larvae of a Notacanthus species after Smith (1989: Ref. 93804), of Notacanthus chemitzii Bloch, 1788 after Moser & Charter (1996: Ref. 35578). Confirmation work/publication still needed. Is uncertain in Notacanthidae in Eschmeyer (CofF ver. June 2013: Ref. 93641).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 2.8 - 8.2, mean 4.3 °C (based on 1093 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = No PD50 data   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00102 (0.00046 - 0.00225), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Nivel trófico (Ref. 69278):  3.4   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resiliencia (Ref. 120179):  Muy bajo, población duplicada en un tiempo mínimo superior a 14 años (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (42 of 100) .
