Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

Spine dorsali (totale): 1. Rounded snout; head with seam-like sensory grooves on head; pectoral fins large; first dorsal fin with a long, sharp spine; a separate anal fin, not extending past the level of end of second dorsal fin. Curved club-shaped appendage between eyes in males. Lateral line canals in open grooves (Ref. 26938). Upper surface silvery gray, lower surface white (Ref. 6902).

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Solitary (Ref. 26340). Oviparous (Ref. 205). Eggs are encased in horny shells (Ref. 205). Unlikely to be seen by divers since this ratfish lives in very deep water (Ref. 26938).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 9 - 18.2, mean 13.4 °C (based on 48 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00309 (0.00126 - 0.00759), b=3.10 (2.89 - 3.31), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.6   ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilienza (Ref. 120179):  Basso, tempo minimo di raddoppiamento della popolazione 4.5 - 14 anni (Assuming fecundity<100).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate to high vulnerability (49 of 100) .
