Classification / Names Common names | Synonyms | Catalog of Fishes (gen., sp.) | ITIS | CoL | WoRMS | Cloffa

Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Perciformes (Perch-likes) > Stichaeidae (Pricklebacks) > Lumpeninae
Etymology: Leptoclinus: Greek, leptos = thin + Greek, klinein, kline = sloping and bed, due to the four apophyses of sphenoid bone (Ref. 45335).

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

Marine; demersal; depth range 2 - 607 m (Ref. 58426).   Polar; -2°C - 2°C (Ref. 120227); 79°N - 43°N, 180°W - 180°E (Ref. 86838)

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

Circumpolar: Arctic to temperate waters; northern hemisphere. Arctic Alaska to Sea of Okhotsk, northern Sea of Japan, Unalaska Island in the Aleutian chain and Puget Sound, Washington, USA. North Atlantic: Arctic to Labrador in Canada; along Scandinavia from Skagerrak to Finnmarken, common at Murmansk, White Sea, Iceland and Greenland (Ref. 10006). The Pacific form is sometimes treated as a subspecies Leptoclinus maculatus diaphanocarus (Ref. 51666).

Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm 12.5, range 13 - 13 cm
Max length : 20.0 cm TL male/unsexed; (Ref. 35388)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 57 - 60; Dorsal soft rays (total): 0; Anal spines: 1-2; Anal soft rays: 34 - 36. Caudal rounded; lower 5 rays of pectorals greatly lengthened and exserted (Ref. 6885). Color greyish - yellow with dark irregular spots (Ref. 35388).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Adults, juveniles, and late postlarvae are found on sandy and mud to pebble bottoms, usually in less than 170 meters (Ref. 2850, 51666, 120227), while early postlarvae are pelagic (Ref. 120227). Food consists of polychaetes and crustaceans (Ref. 10571). They are an important prey for pelagic (as larvae) and benthic (as adults) predators (Ref. 120226). Sexual dimorphism is more pronounced after maturation with males displaying faster somatic growth (Ref. 120226).

Estimates based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969): 0.2 - 7, mean 2.3 (based on 1058 cells).
Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 1.0000   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.3   ±0.39 se; Based on food items.
Generation time: 11.1 ( na - na) years. Estimated as median LN(3)/K based on 2 growth studies.
Resilience (Ref. 120179):  Low, minimum population doubling time 4.5 - 14 years (tm=7; tmax=12; K=0.099; Fec=931).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Moderate vulnerability (37 of 100) .
