Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: L m   ?   range ? - ? cm
Max length : 7.2 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 34506 )

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 75-102; Anal soft rays : 55 - 63. The available specimens of M. smithi differ from all other specimens of a similar total length (6.8-7.2) within the genus by the long skull 7.0-7.6% TL and long lower jaw 11.8-12.5% TL. Furthermore, it is distinguished by the following combination of characters: head long with elongate, pointed snout slightly upturned, rostral fang strongly hooked with distal part in a nearly right angle to dorsal profile of skull, preanal 36.0-37.5% TL, and at least 7 teeth in jaw (Ref. 34506 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The holotypes and paratypes of M. smithi were caught in the water column in a closing net at 4200 and 5200 m, with a sounding at 5800 m (Ref. 34506 ).

Estimates based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82804 ):  PD 50 = 0.5001   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00102 (0.00046 - 0.00225), b=3.06 (2.88 - 3.24), in cm total length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.3   ±0.5 se; based on size and trophs of closest relatives Fishing Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100).
