Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

The single-based branch of the barbel arises from a stem at 56-71% BL and ends to or beyond the barbel tip. Dendritic side filaments off main branch, usually with elongate ovoids or bulblets, growing wee distal to branch origin. The distal, unpigmented part of the bulb laterally flattened (Ref. 34246).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Known from mid water depths of 2000 m (Ref. 34246).

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=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.3   ±0.8 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (25 of 100) .
