Dorsal spines (total): 10; Dorsal soft rays (total): 9; Anal spines: 2; Anal soft rays: 7. This moderately deep-bodied species is distinguished by the following characters: convex dorsal head profile; A II + 7; pectoral-fin rays 14-16 rays with pectoral length 24-28.5% SL; gill rakers 16-20; pseudobranchial filaments broad 15-25, increasing with size; first anal-fin pterygiophore is long, straight and slender, with narrow, hollow tip; vomer broad, triangular, rounded posteriorly, and with many granular teeth; palatine and ectopterygoid with 2-4 rows of granular teeth; tongue with long central band of densely packed granular teeth; orbital diameter 11.7-13.3% SL; absence of longitudinal ridges on preopercular lobe; otolith compact (OL:OH = 1.6-1.7) (Ref. 116586).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

This species was observed and collected in association with the Sakura shrimp, Lucensosergia lucens (Hansen, 1922) in Taiwan during fishing season (December-May) in mid-water trawls, together with Parascombrops yamanouei and other pelagic fishes like bregmacerotids and surface-migrating myctophids. In the Arafura Sea, it was collected in association with demersal fishes like Acropoma japonicum Günther, 1859, Malakichthys levis Yamanoue & Matsuura, 2001, Owstonia aff. Pectinifer (Myers, 1939) and Bembrops spp. at depth close to sea bottom but not far from a major drop-off. (Ref. 116586).
