Is that rattail its last proverbial supper, or simply bycatch? Lampreys, rattails, tsssk...
The rattail in question (there were 3) turns out to be Caelorinchus maurifasciatus, about which virtaully nothing is known. As far as I know, all that is known about this species is the original paper describing it. I'll be doing gut-content analysis on them later this week. There was also a barracudina in there as well. These fish were bycatch that just got caught up with the squid in the trawl net.
