Description A deepwater shark inhabiting the continental and insular slopes. Reproduction and feeding habits unknown. [details]

Habitat Apparently an inhabitant of the continental and insular slopes near the bottom at 600 to 1 000 or more metres and
well off it near the surface at 100min water 640mdeep, and in the epipelagic and mesopelagic zone of the open ocean at 60 to 450 m in water 4 500 to 5 300 m deep. Its uniform dark coloration, similar to many deepwater oceanic teleosts, suggests a mesopelagic rather than epipelagic habitat, and it could be primarily an oceanic shark rather than a primarily slope-dwelling epibenthic species. [details]
