Classification / Names Noms communs | Synonymes | Catalog of Fishes(Genre, Espèce) | ITIS | CoL | WoRMS | Cloffa

Élasmobranches (requins et raies) (sharks and rays) > Carcharhiniformes (Ground sharks) > Pentanchidae (Deepwater catsharks)
Etymology: Bythaelurus: bythos (Gr.), depths of the sea, referring to its deepwater habitat; ailouros (Gr.), cat, probably an allusion to the vernacular “catshark,” so named for its cat-like eyes. (See ETYFish);  bachi: In honor of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), a “musical genius and one of the greatest composers of all time” (so named because the senior author admires Bach and not for any Bach-like feature the shark might possess, Simon Weigmann, pers. comm.) [see also B. vivaldii]. (See ETYFish).

Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00355 (0.00173 - 0.00727), b=3.08 (2.90 - 3.26), in cm total length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Niveau trophique (Ref. 69278):  4.3   ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Résilience (Ref. 120179):  Faible, temps minimum de doublement de population : 4,5 à 14 années (Preliminary low fecundity).
Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low to moderate vulnerability (35 of 100).
