Description A wide-ranging, tropical epipelagic species occurring near continental and island land masses. Feeds on deepwater squid, lanternfish, gonostomatids and idiacanthids, and probably follows its prey on their diel migrations. Probably ovoviviparous. Has well-developed photopores densely covering the ventral part of the body and sparsely seen on the sides. Displays vertical migrations on a diel cycle, seen at the bottom during the day and travels to 200 m at night. [details]
