Etymology: Valenciennellus: From Achille Valenciennes 1794-1865; he worked with Duméril, Cuvier and Lacepède since 1815; malacologist, author of a "Histoire naturelle des poissons" (Ref. 45335 ) .

Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range Ecology

Marine; bathypelagic; non-migratory; depth range 100 - 1000 m (Ref. 74511 ), usually 200 - 400 m (Ref. 4462 ).   Deep-water; 67°N - 34°S, 98°W - 117°W

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Worldwide in tropical to temperate waters (Ref. 37039 ). Eastern Atlantic: scattered records in Iceland, Ireland, Mediterranean Sea, also from Portugal southward to Namibia. Western Atlantic: Gulf of Mexico (Ref. 27768 ). Northwest Atlantic: Canada (Ref. 5951 ). Eastern Pacific: California Current region (Ref. 35838 ). South China Sea (Ref.74511).

Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: L m   ? , range 3 - ? cm
Max length : 3.1 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 4462 ); 3.1 cm SL (female)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 7-10; Anal spines : 0; Anal soft rays : 22 - 25. Silvery in color during the day, darker at night. Branchiostegal rays: 9-10 (Ref. 35838 ). Unique arrangements of the photophores on the tail, five separated groups containing 2-4 light organs (Ref. 37473 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Oceanic and mesopelagic, with marked stratification of size with depth (Ref. 4739 ). Generally non-migrant or only short diel vertical migrations (Ref. 4739 ). A selective daytime feeder on copepods (mainly Pleuromamma and ostracods, Conchoecia ) (Ref. 4739 ). Also Ref. 58302.

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Annual species probably spawning year round (Ref. 4739 ). Spawns more than once with egg batches about 100-360 eggs/ovary pair, the number increasing with animal size (Ref. 4739 ).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 8.1 - 19, mean 12.7 (based on 680 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.7500   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01122 (0.00514 - 0.02450), b=3.04 (2.87 - 3.21), in cm Total Length, based on all LWR estimates for this body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.1   ±0.24 se; Based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 120179 ):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (tmax=1; tm<1; Fec=100-360 (annual<1000)). Vulnerability (Ref. 59153 ):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
