Etymology: Trimma: Greek, trimma, -atos = something crushed (Ref. 45335); bathum: Name from the Greek word ‘bathos’ (?????), meaning deep or deep water, ir, referring to the depth at
which these specimens were collected (50-90 m); an adjective in the nominative singular.

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805
= 0.5000 [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00661 (0.00300 - 0.01455), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245
Resilience (Ref. 69278
): High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153
): Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
