Biology

provided by Deep sea Fishes of the World LifeDesk

Like many species of ceratioid anglerfishes, D. platynogaster is known from relatively few specimens (n=3) and thus, little is known about even the most basic aspect of this species' biology.

Description

provided by Deep sea Fishes of the World LifeDesk

Metamorphosed females of D. platynogaster are distinguished from those of all other genera of the family in having an unusually deep caudal peduncle (21.6–23.8% SL); a blunt snout and short, highly convex frontals resulting in an extremely short head (29.7–30.5% SL); and remarkably few teeth in the jaws (20–32 in the upper jaw, 20–31 in the lower jaw).

Metamorphosed females of D. platynogaster are further unique in having the following combination of character states: Vomerine teeth are present. The sphenotic spines are well developed (their length 2.9–3.6% SL) and directed dorsolaterally. The lower jaw bears a stout symphysial spine. The hyomandibular has a double head. The quadrate spine is well developed (its length 2.5–5.0% SL), but the articular spine is less than one-half the length of the quadrate spine. The posterior margin of the opercle is deeply notched. The subopercle is long and narrow, its dorsal end tapering to a point (the posterior margin without indentation), its ventral end oval in shape (without an anterior spine or projection). The caudal-fin rays are without internal pigmentation. The illicium is considerably longer than the length of the esca bulb. The pterygiophore of the illicium emerges on the snout from between the frontal bones, its anterior end exposed, its posterior end concealed beneath the skin. The first ray of dorsal fin is well developed. There are 6 dorsal-fin rays and 4 anal-fin rays . The pectoral-fin lobe is short and broad (its length 6.6–8.9% SL), shorter than the longest rays of the pectoral fin (16.3–19.9% SL). There are 15–16 pectoral-fin rays. The skin is smooth and apparently naked, without dermal spinules (but specimens are unavailable for clearing and staining). Darkly pigmented skin of the caudal peduncle extends well past the base of the caudal fin (only three known specimens, 134–175 mm; material unavailable for internal osteological examination).

Distribution

provided by Deep sea Fishes of the World LifeDesk

All three known specimens of Dermatias platynogaster were collected in the Western North Pacific Ocean, with gear fished on the bottom: one off Luzon in the Philippines taken with a beam trawl in relatively shallow water (549 m); another in the vicinity of the Magellan Seamounts, east of the Mariana Islands, with a bottom trawl fished at a maximum depth of 1342 m; and the third from the Townsville Trough, off Queensland, Australia, with a bottom trawl fished at 1188 m.

Morphology

provided by Deep sea Fishes of the World LifeDesk

The body of metamorphosed females is moderately short, somewhat fusiform, its depth approximately 45–55% SL. The snout is blunt; the head extremely short (29.7–30.5% SL). The mouth is small, the opening almost horizontal, and the cleft extending slightly past the eye. The opercular opening is unusually large, 19.4–22.5% SL. The illicium length is 15.3–17.5% SL. The esca, remarkably similar to those of some species of Oneirodes, bears a stout, internally pigmented anterior escal appendage approximately as long as the length of the escal bulb; a pair of medial escal appendages, each consisting of a dense cluster of slender filaments, some slightly longer than length of the escal bulb, and each with a darkly pigmented distal tip; a small rounded terminal papilla, with a single terminal pigment spot; and a simple unpigmented filamentous posterior escal appendage somewhat longer than the length of the escal bulb.

The teeth in the jaws are slender, recurved, and all depressible, those in the lower jaw slightly larger than those of the upper jaw. The longest tooth in upper jaw measures 2.4–3.1% SL; the longest in lower jaw is 3.4–3.7% SL. There are 20–32 teeth in upper jaw and 20–31 in the lower jaw. There are 4–6 teeth on the vomer. The second and third pharyngobranchials are both well developed and toothed.

The following measurements are expressed in percent SL: head length 29.7–30.5; head width 25.5–29.1; head depth 33.7–36.6; least outside width between frontals 9.1–10.9; length of premaxilla 22.4–24.0; length of lower jaw 25.2–33.6; length of lower fork of opercle 19.7–22.5, upper fork 10.9–14.9; length of subopercle 8.6–11.3.

Reproduction

provided by Deep sea Fishes of the World LifeDesk

Although males are unknown, D. platynogaster is probably like many species of the family Oneirodidae in that they never become parasitic. Spawning and fertilization may take place during a temporary sexual attachment that does not involve fusion of male and female tissues.

Trophic Strategy

provided by Deep sea Fishes of the World LifeDesk

As with nearly all species of deep-sea anglerfishes, D. platynogaster lures prey to its mouth with bioluminescence emitted from the esca. Unlike most deep-sea fishes that produce bioluminescence, light produced by ceratioid anglerfishes is not endogenous, but rather the product of a bacterial community in the esca.

Brief Summary

provided by EOL authors
Dermatias platynogaster, the Bulbous Deep Sea Angler, is a deep-sea fish known from only three specimens , all females collected in the Western Pacific Ocean, with gear fished on the bottom: one off Luzon in the Philippines, taken with a beam trawl in relatively shallow water (549 m); the second in the vicinity of the Magellan Seamounts, east of the Mariana Islands, with a bottom trawl fished at a maximum depth of 1342 m; and the third in the vicinity of the Townsville Trough (Queensland, Australia), with a bottom trawl fished at a maximum depth of 1188 m (Kharin and Pietsch 2007). This species, the only species placed in the genus Dermatias, is distinguished from all other members of the family Oneirodidae by its unusually deep caudal peduncle, extremely short head, and remarkably small number of teeth in the jaws (Pietsch and Kharin 2004; Pietsch 2009). Like other anglerfishes, D. platynogaster have an escal appendage on the top of the head, which presumably functions as a bacterial bioluminescent lure, as in related species. Escal morphology is strikingly similar to that of some Oneirodes species (Pietsch and Kharin 2004). The D. platynogaster that have been found have ranged between 134 and 175 mm in length (Pietsch 2009).

Diagnostic Description

provided by Fishbase
No males and larvae are known. Diagnostic characters refer to metamorphosed females, which differ from other species in the family Oneirodidae by having an unusually deep caudal peduncle (21.6-23.8% SL); blunt and short snout, highly convex frontals forming an extremely short head (29.8-30.5% SL); few teeth in jaws (20-32 in the upper jaw, 20-31 lower). Metamorphosed females are also distinguished by the following set of characters: presence of vomerine teeth; well-developed sphenotic spines (length 3.4-3.6% SL), directed dorsolaterally; a stout symphysial spine on lower jaw; hyomandibular with double head; well-developed quadrate spine (length 4.5-5.0% SL); articular spine less than half length of quadrate spine; posterior margin of opercle deeply notched; long and narrow subopercle, dorsal end tapering to a point (posterior margin without indentation), ventral end oval in shape (no anterior spine or projection); caudal-fin rays with no internal pigmentation; illicium distinctly longer than length of esca bulb; pterygiophore of illicium emerging on snout from between fontal bones, anterior end exposed, posterior end concealed beneath skin; well-developed first dorsal-fin ray ; D 6; A 4; pectoral -fin rays 15-16; short and broad pectoral-fin lobe (length 8.6-8.9%SL) shorter than longest rays of pectoral fin (19.4-19.9% SL); skin apparently naked, no dermal spinules; darkly pigmented skin of caudal peduncle extending well past base of caudal fin (specimens 2:13.4-15.1 cm SL) (Ref. 51262).
