Trophic Strategy

provided by Fishbase
Inhabits the lower regions of the continental slope between 800 m and 1, 800 m. It appears that sex segregation is also basic to this species, but whether or not the species migrates extensively or uses the North American west coast slopes only as feeding areas is not known. Feeds on benthic invertebrates.

描述

provided by The Fish Database of Taiwan
背鰭鰭條5+53;臀鰭鰭條37;胸鰭鰭條18;腹鰭鰭條6;鰓耙4+8=12。背鰭基部與側線間鱗列11。體長為頭長之4.2倍,為體高之5.4倍,為體寬之9.4倍,為背鰭前長之4.1倍,為腹鰭前長之5.3倍。頭長為吻長之2.9倍,為眼徑之3.6倍,為眼間距之4.0倍,為眼後寬之1.9倍,為上頜之2.1倍,為第一背鰭高之1.1倍,為腹鰭之1.3倍,為下頜鬚之7.5倍。體略長,略側扁;尾柄相當短;頭部略小,略扁;吻部很寬,前方形成骨板,向前延伸遠超過口部;吻大,次端位;上頜向後延伸至眼部後緣。眼大;眼間距寬,僅略小於眼徑。牙齒細,在兩頜呈帶狀,外列不特大;鋤骨具ㄧ小叢細齒;無腭齒。具下頜鬚,短於眼徑。體被圓鱗,包含鰓被架膜、喉部以及鰭膜。不具發光器。肛門位於臀鰭起點。背鰭起點位於胸鰭基部之後;腹鰭插入點位於胸鰭基部之前,腹鰭最外鰭條延長呈絲狀,向後延伸至肛門與腹鰭起點中間;臀鰭起點遠較第二背鰭起點後;尾鰭成扇形。尾柄細,約與眼徑等長。體呈一致深灰色,各鰭顏色較深。Small (1981)認為本屬有兩種,但近期分生研究認為應只有一種,仍須進一步的相關研究。台灣的標本因鰓絲較長且較多,目前暫列名為/A. microlepis/。(何宣慶編寫 2012/12)
