Notes

Includes both species C. armatus  and C. yaquinae.  Both species have been recovered from the CCZ but are not readily distinguishable in photographs. Prominent snout and small chin barbel. First dorsal fin prominent and separated from the second dorsal fin which tapers to tip of whip tail. First pelvic fin ray elongated. Body color ranges from white to dark gray often with darker areas around fin insertions and eyes.
