Abstract

Swimming above seabed.Up to 1000 mm in total length. not a synaphobranchid, but a Nettastomidae (sharp elongate snout, dorsal fin is very high, and tapers unlike a synaphobranchid, pectoral fins may be absent or very small (usually these are prominent in synaphos and held out laterally). My initial guess is Nettastoma, maybe N. melanura, which is known from the Gulf of Guinea, depth range overall 300-900 m
