Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 49.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 26363)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 2. Fully-scaled underside of head and lower jaw; snout long, length 44.5-51.4% HL, dorsal anterior surface upturned in lateral profile; area anterior to and below nostrils covered with scales between nostrils and suborbital ridge; light organ lacking obvious ventral dermal window; anterior of the anal fin dusky, pale posteriorly (Ref. 26363). Similar to a number of moderate- to long-snouted Caelorinchus species which lack distinguishing body or fin markings but may be differentiated from each other based on their body proportions, among other characters (Ref. 26363).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

A benthic species found on the continental slope (Ref. 75154).

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=0.00302 (0.00129 - 0.00709), b=3.12 (2.93 - 3.31), based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.5 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (53 of 100) .
