This species is distinguished by the following characters: very elongate, slender with flattened head and body, total number of vertebrae 26; dorsal pterygiophore pattern 3-12210; sensory papillae on head in longitudinal pattern, with most papillae fleshy and forming two low fleshy ridges or folds on side of head; no sensory pores on head; lateral scales 56; no scales from head, predorsal, pre-pelvic area and belly; no barbels on underside of head; D I,12; A I,13; pectoral-fin rays 17. Colour translucent pinkish when fresh, upper part of head and body with fine dark brown speckling, fins translucent with variable brown speckling (Ref. 121777).
Dredged started at 182 m and lifted at 172 m, over mud and clay bottom, after 14 minutes of bottom time. With the specimen, large polychaetes, many tube worms, molluscs, crustacea, and ophiuroids came up in the dredge (Ref. 121777).

Estimates based on models
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= No PD50 data [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00575 (0.00261 - 0.01268), b=3.09 (2.91 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Trophic level (Ref. 69278
): 3.2 ±0.3 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
