Barbel present; dentition variable among species, from broad bands to 1 or 2 rows; snout moderately pointed; outer gill slit greatly restricted. Upper jaw falls short of reaching below posterior 1/3 of orbits. An extremely long dorsal spine, usually 1.5 or more times the head length. Preopercle margin broadly rounded at posteroventral corner; orbit diameter very small, about 17% of head length. 
Habitat: Benthopelagic fishes in the deep sea. A rare species of macrourids from the upper continental slope off northwestern Taiwan at depths between 400m and 800m. Food of these fishes consists of a wide range of fish and both benthic and pelagic invertebrates.
