Short description Morfologia | Morfometria

A relatively small (max. size 474 mm TL) Atelomycterus with the following combination of characters: relatively short preoral length, 4.0-4.6% T; short interdorsal space, 11.6-12.9% TL; high pectoral-pelvic to pelvic-anal ratio 1.28-1.48; dorsal fins weakly falcate, with posterior margins vertical or sloping anteroventrally from fin apices; prebranchial denticles strongly tricuspid with narrow, elongate medial cusps; claspers of adults short, not stubby, not tapering sharply distally, outer length 8.3-9% TL, base width 5.4-6.3% of outer length; clasper glans covering more than half of clasper; cover rhipidion relatively narrow; rhipidion large, relatively low, and only partly concealed by cover rhipidion and exorhipidion; exorhipidion small with proximal end well behind distal end of cover rhipidion; total vertebral centra 154-163, precaudal centra 101-106; dorsal surface with well-defined dark saddles consisting mainly of four, partly coalesced, diffuse-edged, dark brown blotches; white partly coalesced, diffuse-edged, dark brown blotches; white spots absent from body and rarely on fins; inner margin of pale tips of dorsal fins orientated almost vertically; upper pectoral fin lacking a broad, sharply defined whitish margin.

Biologia     Glossario (es. epibenthic)

Biology unknown; presumably reef-dwelling, inhabiting holes and crevices on reefs, like other related catsharks. Presumably oviparous. Diet probably dominated by small invertebrates . Caught irregularly by fisheries operating over coral reefs. Utilized for its meat but of limited value (Ref.58048).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00389 (0.00180 - 0.00842), b=3.12 (2.94 - 3.30), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic level (Ref. 69278):  3.9   ±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 (Low fecundity (RF)).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (37 of 100) .
