Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range Ecology

Marine; bathydemersal; depth range 630 - 2604 m (Ref. 58018).   Deep-water

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 45.2 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 6950)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 15-17. Body uniformly brown with dark fins. Head pores unreduced. Lateral line system with dorsolateral, a mediolateral and a ventral lateral line. Long tail, preanal 33.5-45.9% SL. Body scaled, including neck, fins and abdomen (Ref. 27255). Differs from sympatric species L. vahlii and L. esmarkii by its uniform coloration (vs. bars or marks present), lack of predorsal lateral line, smaller and fewer palatine teeth (3-5 vs. 8-22 and 5-13 respectively) and position of the last precaudal vertebrae in relation to dorsal fin (ray number 15-17 vs.18-19 and 19-20 respectively) (Ref. 36375).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Benthic; feeds on sponge remains, worms, molluscs, pycnogonids, crustaceans and brittle stars (Ref. 58426). Species forgotten in CLOFNAM (10007) and FNAM (4695).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 3.1 - 7.1, mean 4.1 (based on 329 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00129 (0.00055 - 0.00300), b=3.10 (2.89 - 3.31), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.45 se; Based on food items.
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (52 of 100) .
