Dorsal soft rays (total): 64; Anal soft rays: 52; Vertebrae: 68. The species is distinguished from its congeners by the following set of characters: D 64; A 56; pectoral-fin rays 24; vertebrae 68 (11+57); dorsalmost pectoral-fin ray insertion level with dorsal margin of eye; ventral pectoral-fin lobe with 3 short, thick, fleshy, lightly pigmented rays; mouth reaching posteriorly beyond anterior margin of eye; gill opening entirely above pectoral fin, surrounded with fleshy tissue; long, pointed gill rakers with 0-3 spinules at or near tip; anus positioned forward near the pectoral symphysis; wide caudal fin with 6 rays; pyloric caeca 5; uniformly brown on lateral body and median fins (Ref. 82595).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Collected at 640 m in water 3,658 m deep using a Marinovich midwater trawl. The male holotype was with mature testes, and possess a prominent genital papilla, length nearly one-half eye diameter and directed anteriorly (Ref. 82595).

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=0.00417 (0.00184 - 0.00944), b=3.19 (2.99 - 3.39), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.5 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 vulnerability (25 of 100) .
