This species is distinguished by the following set of characters: vertebrae 46 (10 - 11 + 35 - 36), D 42 - 43, A 35 - 36; pectoral-fin rays 31 - 32; pleural ribs 3 pairs; hypural one, slitted; C 10 (principal rays); head in adults 25.5 - 26.3 % SL, preanal length 39 % SL; eye 28.2 - 28.5 % head length (lc); pelvic disk 31.4 - 32.3 % lc; pores 2-6-7-1; gill slit reaching to the 4th pectoral-fin ray. Colouration: when fresh bright reddish-orange with peritoneum pale (Ref. 123108).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The sediment from the Agassiz trawl was a mixture of sand, pebbles and stones, and numerous large fragments of dead and living glass sponges. Invertebrates found were dominated by at least 5 species of isopods and caprellids attached to colonies of hydroids (5 - 6 species), some benthopelagic shrimps (2 - 3 species), and a few gastropods and ophiurids (Ref. 123108).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = No PD50 data   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00427 (0.00194 - 0.00940), b=3.19 (3.01 - 3.37), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this Genus-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.2   ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
