Character: D.13; A.13; P.16; AO 4 + 2, total 6; G.R. 5 + 1 + 11, total 17. Mouth very large, almost horizontal, with snout slightly overhanging lower jaw. Operculum tapering posteriorly into a rather blunt point about at level of upper end of base of pectoral fin; posterodorsal opercular margin broadly rouded, smooth. A conspicuous pterotic spine, directed posteriorly. Origin of dorsal fin in advance of base of ventral fin. Origin of anal fin behind end of base of dorsal fin. Pectoral fins extending somewhat beyond VLO. Ventral fins reaching anus. Base of adipose fin slightly in advance of vertical through end of base of anal fin. Vn present. A very small Op1 close behind angle of mouth; Op2 much larger and about at level of ventral margin of orbit. PLO in advance of base of pectoral fin and 1.5-2 times its own diameter below lateral line. PVO1 at level of posterior end of mouth, on or slightly behind vertical through center of PVO2 and in advance of PO2; PVO2 in contact with base of pectoral fin. Five PO, forming a straight or gentle arched line, PO5 slightly elevated. VLO somewhat nearer to lateral line than to base of ventral fin. Three VO, level. SAO forming a straight or gentle arched line. Four AOa, level; AOa3-AOa4 interspace enlarged. Pol slightly behind last AOa, under posterior end of base of adipose fin and less than its own diameter below lateral line. AOp separated by a distance about 1.5 times an organ diameter, with first AOp lying immediately in front of anterior end of INGL. Prc 2+1; Prc1 and Prc2 nearly level and 1-1.5 times an organ diameter apart from each other; Prc3 well behind Prc2 and slightly above level of lateral line. SUGL and UNGL of about same length which is equal to horizontal diameter of eye; distance between anterior end of infracaudal gland and end of base of anal fin a little shorter than length of gland. 
Habitat: Oceanic, found between 800-2,000 m during the day and mainly below 1,000 m at night. Small specimens in colder water to 330 m. 
Distribution: In waters southwest of Tungsha Island. Eastern Atlantic: Morocco to Angola. Western Indian Ocean: a single specimen at 6°1'N, 64°59'E. Eastern Pacific: near Hawaii.
