Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Seven branchiostegal rays. Head notably large and broad; preopercle and suborbital bones deep and large, opercle commensurately small; orbit small, 19%-30% HL, diameter much less than broad interorbital; snout high, slightly projecting beyond mouth. Mental barbel small, 10% or less of HL. Gill opening wide, extending forward to below hind end of maxilla; gill membranes loosely and narrowly attached to isthmus. Gill rakers usually 16-17 on inner series of 1st arch. Teeth small, close-set, in narrow tapered band on premaxilla, uniserial on dentary. Scales with numerous small, awl-shaped spinules; no reticulations on anterior field; lateral line scales absent, a series of dark papillae in their place. Vent about halfway between pelvic fin insertion and anal fin origin (usually closer to pelvic insertion), surrounded by a black, oval to teardrop-shaped naked area and preceded by a small, round dermal window of light organ between pelvic fin bases. Pyloric caeca short, 22-24. Color black to dark brown overall (Ref. 54421).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 4.5 - 5.7, mean 5.1 (based on 18 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00219 (0.00095 - 0.00502), b=3.17 (2.98 - 3.36), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.5   ±0.5 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):  Moderate to high vulnerability (45 of 100) .
