Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 3; Dorsal soft rays (total): 8; Anal soft rays: 6; Vertebrae: 19. This species is distinguished by having 3 dorsal spines, postcephalic spine absent; illicium relatively short, 13.3-24.2% SL; second dorsal spine relatively short, 12.2-21.2% SL; third dorsal spine relatively short, 9.1-20.6% SL; esca a leaf-like flap; tendrils present on second and third dorsal spine (Ref. 84766).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

A benthic species found on the continental slope (Ref. 75154). All known specimens were collected between Elite and Mindanao at depths ranging from 494 to 1,560 m. It is the deepest living of all lophiid species.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 2.3 - 10.8, mean 7.7 (based on 896 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01995 (0.00894 - 0.04455), b=2.98 (2.79 - 3.17), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  4.2   ±0.7 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (29 of 100) .
