Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Lophiiformes (Anglerfishes) > Oneirodidae (Dreamers)
Etymology: Phyllorhinichthys: Greek, 'phyllon' = leaf + Greek, 'rhinos' = nose or snout + Greek, 'ichthys' = fish (in reference to the leaf-like flaps on its snout) (Ref. 86949);  balushkini: Named after the Russian ichthyologist Balushkin.

Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range Ecology

Marine; bathypelagic; depth range 0 - 3200 m (Ref. 53300).   Deep-water

Max length : 14.5 cm SL (female)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 5; Anal soft rays: 5. Diagnosis: Metamorphosed females of this species have longer illicium (16.0-20.8% SL) than P. micractis (11.5-12.6%SL); and further differs in having a single anterior escal appendage (vs. 2), bifurcated only at the distal tip; considerably longer, more slender, distal escal appendage, 36.4-57.6% SL (vs. 6.4-15.8%SL); and, has probably smaller, less-well-developed snout flaps, however, skin of the snout of 3 of the 5 known specimens is torn away that making proper assessment of the character is impossible (Ref. 53300).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Known from five (5) known specimens. A 12.5-cm specimen with about 35-mm long (27%SL) ovaries contains thousands of tiny eggs, each about 0.2-0.3 mm in diameter (Ref. 53300). Minimum depth from Ref. 58018.

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 1.7 - 11, mean 5.9 (based on 571 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01000 (0.00244 - 0.04107), b=3.04 (2.81 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.9   ±0.6 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 vulnerability (35 of 100) .
