Identification of the notothenioid sister lineage illuminates the biogeographic history of an Antarctic adaptive radiation
The phylogenetic resolution of Percophis requires a change in the classification of percomorph fishes and provides evidence for a western Weddellian origin of notothenioids, which highlights the importance of the geographic and climatic isolation of Antarctica in driving the radiation of cold-adapted nototenioids.
Molecular phylogeny of Percomorpha resolves Trichonotus as the sister lineage to Gobioidei (Teleostei: Gobiiformes) and confirms the polyphyly of Trachinoidei.
A new species of the clingfish genus Kopua (Gobiesociformes: Gobiesocidae) from Japan
A new clingfish, Kopuavermiculata, is described on the basis of a single specimen collected from ca. 100 m depth off the Pacific coast of Honshu Island, Japan. The new species is distinguished from…

Comparisons of neuroanatomical characteristics with those of New Zealand tripterygiids previously reported revealed significant differences, thereby indicating that detailed examination of the lateral line system could provide new information useful for taxonomic studies.
A new species of Trichonotus (Perciformes: Trichonotidae) from Somalia and redescription of Trichonotus cyclograptus (Alcock, 1890) with designation of a lectotype
Sand diver Trichonotus cyclograptus, a poorly known species, is redescribed on the basis of the newly-designated lectotype and paralectotypes.
Complete mitochondrial genomes of two sand diver species (Perciformes, Trichonotidae): novel gene orders and phylogenetic position within Gobiiformes
Phylogenetic analysis showed that Trichonotidae and Apogonidae are sister groups, which together with Kurtidae are placed as a closely related clade of Gobioidei.
First records of a bothid flounder, Engyprosopon macrolepis, from Japan (Teleostei, Pleuronectiformes, Bothidae)
The new Japanese nameHoshizora-daruma-gareiis proposed for the species, Engyprosopon macrolepis, represents the northernmost record of the species and include the largest male recorded.
First Record of the Longlure Flatfish, Asterorhombus filifer (Pleuronectiformes: Bothidae), from Japan
Five specimens (10.4-86.5 mm standard length) of the Indo-West Pacific flatfish Asterorhombus filifer were collected at depths of 12-21 m on sandy bottoms at Yoron Island and Amami-oshima Island, Ryukyu Islands, Japan.
