Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

This species is distinguished by the following characters: posterior tip of coronoid process of dentary is abruptly depressed so teeth on anterior portion appear as an elevated patch, thus creating a wavy contour on lower jaw; anterior tip of upper jaw is not notched; posterior nostril horizontally slit-like (Ref. 115558).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Depth unknown but specimens were collected as bycatch of hand-lining targeting Priacanthus etelis and Pristipomoides, which are reported to occur at depths between 15 and 400 m. The third author recently obtained a video clip that clearly shows this species in situ was taken off Lembeh Island, near Bitung, North Sulawesi, Indonesia, at 199 m on 12 November 2015, by an ROV as part of an ongoing survey of the Indonesian coelacanth (Ref. 115558).
