Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 2; Raggi dorsali molli (totale): 0; Spine anali 0; Raggi anali molli: 0. Light brown above, black below, with a pale stripe on side and a black streak above and behind pelvic fins; belly luminous (Ref. 26346). Small and slender, with a moderately elongate caudal peduncle and with flank denticles mostly arranged in regular rows. The base of the pelvic flank markings is inserted in advance of the origin of the second dorsal-fin spine, the anterior branch is shorter than the posterior branch, and the caudal marking is longer than the precaudal marking (Ref. 6871).

Probably demersal (Ref. 31367) on upper continental slopes (Ref. 6871). Ovoviviparous (Ref. 205), size at birth about 15 cm (Ref. 6871).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 7.8 - 14.1, mean 9.8 °C (based on 208 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00380 (0.00178 - 0.00811), b=3.08 (2.89 - 3.27), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  4.2   ±0.4 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Molto basso, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione più di 14 anni (Assuming Fec<10).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (39 of 100) .
