  • aplacental viviparous, smallest shark (ref: inaturalist)
  • upper continental slope at a depth of 283439 m (ref: inaturalist)
  • dark brown with a striking and distinctive pattern of black markings on its ventral surface, a continuous or broken, fine black line along the middle of its back; Some of the ventral black markings are composed of light-producing photophores, while others (including the patch behind the pelvic fins) are composed of pigment-containing chromatophores. (ref: inaturalist)


  • males are assumed to differ from females by E_Hp only
