Up to the present, the genus Leptostichaeus has been considered as belonging to subfamily Lumpeninae. A series of characters was analyzed for family and subfamily diagnostics within the group Stichaeidae. It was found that, in combination of all examined characters, the genus Leptostichaeus is either similar to Azygopterus or occupies an intermediate(More)
The family Lophiidae is represented in Russia’s waters by three species, one of which— Lophius piscatorius —is found in the Black and Barents seas, and the other two of which— L. litulon (Jordan in Jordan et Sindo, 1902) and Lophiomus setigerus —are known from the Sea of Japan (Parin, 2002) thanks to a few catches containing adult individuals in the Peter(More)
Mitochondrial DNA of the Co-1 gene region was sequenced for 8 fish species (in total 17 sequences of at least 532 bp) from the far east of Russia and compared to 3 other perciform sequences, altogether comprising 20 perch-like fish sequences and 2 outgroup sequences (Cypriniformes). The analysis of the protein-coding Co-1 gene revealed a statistically(More)
The analysis of variation among 203 nucleotide sequences of Co-1 gene (DNA-barcode) for 45 species, 31 genera and 7 families of the order Perciformes from the Far Eastern seas of Russia has been performed. As a result, 42 species (93.3%) can be unambiguously identified using molecular DNA-barcode at Co-1, whereas more variable markers are required for other(More)
The eelpout Lycodes soldatovi was found at depths of 153 to 1005 m in the Sea of Okhotsk; however, it usually inhabits the depth range of 400 to 800. The mean and maximum abundance and the biomass of this species were 198.5 and 1037 individuals per km2 and 173.7 and 1275 kg/km2, respectively. In view of the data on the distribution of young fish (up to 30(More)
According to today’s notions, the family of flying fish Exocoetidae is represented in the Russian waters by five rare species. These are Exocoetus monocirrhus Richardson, 1846 ( E. volitans of some authors); Hirundichthys brachycephalus (Günther, 1866) ( H. rondeletii— see Fedorov and Parin, 1998); Cypselurus heterurus doederleinii ( Steindachner, 1887) ((More)
According to contemporary notions, the fossil monotypical family of tarpons, i.e., Megalopidae, belonging to the order Elopiformes of subclass Neopterygii and known from the Paleocene (Danil’chenko, 1964; Forey, 1973; Nelson, 1994), is represented in the recent fauna by two subtropical and tropical, epipelagic species widespread in the waters of all oceans(More)
