Etymology: Halieutopsis: Greek, halieutis = fisher + Greek, opsis = apperance (Ref. 45335);  bathyoreos: From a species of a deep mountain (Ref. 40825).

Environment / Climate / Range Ecology

Marine; bathydemersal; depth range 960 - 1500 m (Ref. 40825).   Deep-water

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 6.3 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 40825)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 5; Anal soft rays: 4; Vertebrae: 19. This species is distinguished from its congeners in having the following characters: subtriangular disc in outline; illicial trough and esca fully visible in ventral view; tubercles on dorsal surface with 6-8 facets (Ref. 92977); a shelflike rostrum extending anteriorly well beyond the mouth; a dorsal, relatively wide, leaf-shaped dorsal escal lobe slightly bisected ventrally; an illicial cavity completely square in outline and completely visible from the ventral view; tubercles absent on ventral surface of disk (Ref. 40825, 55719). Additional characters due to its redescription (Ref. 55719) are: rostrum width 21-29% of head length; tubercles on the dorsal surface of the disk about half the diameter of those on the lateral margin; and, 13-15 large lateral-line scales on the tail (Ref. 55719).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Holotype taken from a depth of 1,500 m (Ref. 33390). Minimum depth from Ref. 58018.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 3 - 5.2, mean 4.1 (based on 301 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5010   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01950 (0.00756 - 0.05030), b=2.96 (2.73 - 3.19), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.6 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 to moderate vulnerability (26 of 100) .
