Indifferent eel

provided by wikipedia EN

The Indifferent eel[2] (Ethadophis akkistikos) is a species of eels in the family Ophichthidae (worm/snake eels).[3] It was described by John E. McCosker and James Erwin Böhlke in 1984.[4] It is a marine, tropical eel which is known from the western central Atlantic Ocean, including Panama, Nicaragua, Suriname, and Texas, USA.[5] It dwells at a depth range of 55 to 58 metres (180 to 190 ft).[3]

The Indifferent eel is currently listed as Data Deficient at the IUCN redlist, due to there being few known specimens, and thereby a lack of certain information on the extent of its distribution and possible threats.[5]
