Short description Morfologi | Morfometri

Taggstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 0; Mjukstrålar i ryggfenan (totalt): 0; Taggstrålar i analfenan 0; Mjukstrålar i analfenan: 0. A slender, dwarf catshark with 2 equal-sized dorsal fins and a long tape-like caudal fin (Ref. 5578). Grey-brown in color (Ref. 5578).

Biologi     Ordlista (t.ex. epibenthic)

Found on the upper continental slope and outer shelf (Ref. 244). Feeds on small bony fishes, crustaceans and cephalopods (Ref. 244). Ovoviviparous (Ref. 50449), with 2 young in a litter (Ref. 244). Geographic or bathymetric segregation of populations by sex probably occurs as most specimens taken off Natal were male (Ref. 244).

Life cycle and mating behavior Könsmognad | Reproduktion | Lek | Ägg | Fecundity | Larver

Ovoviviparous, embryos feed solely on yolk (Ref. 50449). Bears two young (Ref. 5578). Size at birth between 15 and 17 cm (Ref. 244).
