Classification / Names Common names | Synonyms | Catalog of Fishes (gen., sp.) | ITIS | CoL | WoRMS | Cloffa

Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Myctophiformes (Lanternfishes) > Myctophidae (Lanternfishes) > Lampanyctinae
Etymology: Nannobrachium: Latin, nannus = small + Latin, brachium = the upper arm from the shoulder to the elbow; 1731 (Ref. 45335).

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Marine; bathypelagic; oceanodromous (Ref. 51243); depth range 60 - 1150 m (Ref. 36121).   Deep-water; 42°N - 37°S, 82°W - 153°W

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Tropical and subtropical waters of the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific oceans. Eastern Atlantic: disjunct distribution between 35°N-27°S and in Agulhas Water pockets (absent over the upwelling region between 17°N-9°N, east of 30°W). Western Atlantic: disjunct distribution between 42°N-10°S. Indian Ocean: between 8°N-0°. Western Central Pacific: Philippines. Considerable differences between Atlantic and Indo-Pacific material suggests that there may be more than one species involved (Ref. 36121).

Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?, range 15 - ? cm
Max length : 23.7 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 36121)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 16-18; Anal spines: 0; Anal soft rays: 20 - 23; Vertebrae: 37 - 44. 14-17 AO photophores; 8-10.5 tooth patches on the lower limb of the second gill arch; 37-44 lateral line organs (Ref. 36121). Pectoral fin rays rather weak, flexible (Ref. 36121).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Oceanic (Ref. 4066), found between 650-1,000 m during the day; between 60-225 m at night (maximum abundance (mainly juveniles) at 100 m) (Ref. 4479). Mesopelagic (Ref. 58302). Uncommon species (Ref. 36121).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 7.7 - 18.6, mean 11.9 (based on 891 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00537 (0.00250 - 0.01151), b=3.08 (2.89 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.0   ±0.00 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 (50 of 100) .
