Demise of the Scorpaeniformes (Actinopterygii: Percomorpha):An Alternative Phylogenetic Hypothesis
The order Scorpaeniformes as currently recognized is hypothesized to be polyphyletic and reallocation of both lineages to the order Perciformes is proposed, recognizing a suborder Scorpaenoidei to contain the scorpaenoid lineage plus Serranidae, and a sub order Cottoidei closely aligned with the Zoarcoideito contain the cottoid lineage.
Phylogenetic position of the family Trichodontidae (Teleostei: Perciformes), with a revised classification of the perciform suborder Cottoidei
It is proposed that the Trichodontidae is placed into the cottoid superfamily Trichdontoidea, and the family and Cottoidea plus Cyclopteroidea have a sister relationship, supporting a previously inferred molecular phylogenetic hypothesis.
Larval record of a red firefish, Pterois volitans, from northwestern Australia (Pisces: Scorpaeniformes)
The larval stage of the scorpaenid Pterois volitans is described based on five specimens collected from northwestern Australia, the eastern Indian Ocean.

The taxonomy of the fish genus Platycephalus Bloch, 1785 from Australia is revised following examination of all extant primary types of Australian species, including those previously synonymized. The
Redefinition and phylogenetic relationships of the family Pinguipedidae (Teleostei: Perciformes)
The conclusion drawn here is that it is not parsimonious to recognize the monophyly of the Pinguipedidae and Cheimarrichthys based on these nine derived characters, and that these characters are not compelling enough to link these groups.
Anatomical description and phylogenetic classification of the orbicular velvetfishes (Scorpaenoidea: Caracanthus)
Anatomical characters for two species of the orbicular velvetfishes (Caracanthus) are described, and the phylogenetic position of the genus among the superfamily Scorpaenoidea is estimated
Anatomical description of the genus Perryena, and proposal to erect a new family for it based on its phylogenetic relationships with related taxa (Scorpaeniformes)
The new family name Perryenidae is proposed for Perryena, here designated as the type genus of the family, with Perryena representing a branch off a clade comprising the Tetrarogidae, Synanceiidae, Aploactinidae, Congiopodidae, Gnathanacanthidae and Pataecidae.
