Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Max length : 40.4 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 56495); 38.8 cm TL (female)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Diagnosis: Distinguished by the following characters (vs. Galeus antillensis): shorter prepectoral length 16.1%-18.6% (vs. 19.4-21.8%); smaller pectoral anterior margin (8.9-10.1% (vs. 10.2-12.7%); smaller pectoral posterior margin 7.4-8.5% (vs. 8.8-11.6%); and fewer number of diplospondylous vertebrae 35-36, n=3 (vs. 39-78, n=4) (Ref. 56495).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The species inhabits deep-reefs in the shelf break and on the continental slope, and is often found in depths greater than 400 meters, with gorgonians, hard corals, tube sponges, crinoids, ophiuroids, and a great number of the sympatric scyliorhinid shark Scyliorhinus haeckelii (Ref. 56495). Minimum depth from Ref. 58018.

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Species is oviparous with a single encapsulated egg (Ref. 56495).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 11.6 - 15.8, mean 14.6 (based on 15 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00324 (0.00161 - 0.00651), b=3.11 (2.93 - 3.29), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.9   ±0.2 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  Very Low, minimum population doubling time more than 14 years (Fec= 1).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (38 of 100) .
