While one or possibly two species of the genus Photostomias have been recognized, an unpublished revision of the Malacosteinae suggested that there may be as many as six species worldwide. Our review of museum material revealed three taxa in the Atlantic alone: Photostomias atrox Alcock, 1890; Photostomias guernei Collett, 1889; and a new species described herein. Because of a paucity of Indo-Pacific material and a need to better document Atlantic biodiversity, we treat only the Atlantic… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Revision of Indo-Pacific Species of the Loosejaw Dragonfish Genus Photostomias (Teleostei: Stomiidae: Malacosteinae)
TLDR
The current study brings the total number of valid species of Photostomias to six, with females maturing at standard lengths less than 70 mm, making these species the smallest sexually mature stomiids.
Revision of the Stoplight Loosejaw Genus Malacosteus (Teleostei: Stomiidae: Malacosteinae), with Description of a New Species from the Temperate Southern Hemisphere and Indian Ocean
TLDR
A new species of deep-sea stomiid fish genus Malacosteus, known from 182 specimens captured in temperate and sub-Antarctic waters of the southern hemisphere, the tropical Indian Ocean, and Waters of the Indo-Australian Archipelago, is diagnosed primarily on the basis of postorbital photophore size and serial photophores counts.
Diel vertical migration of the loosejaw dragonfishes (Stomiiformes: Stomiidae: Malacosteinae): a new analysis for rare pelagic taxa
TLDR
The diel vertical migration of three genera of the stomiid subfamily Malacosteinae was analysed from capture records of nearly 300 specimens in the Atlantic Ocean and relationships between DVM patterns, morphology and foraging ecology are inferred.
Diel vertical migration of the loosejaw dragonfishes ( Stomiiformes : Stomiidae : Malacosteinae
The diel vertical migration (DVM) of three genera of the stomiid subfamily Malacosteinae (Photostomias, Aristostomias and Malacosteus) was analysed from capture records of nearly 300 specimens in the
Reproductive Ecology of Dragonfishes (Stomiiformes: Stomiidae) in the Gulf of Mexico
TLDR
Histological analysis indicated that females mature at larger sizes than males, a key element for quantifying the role of stomiids in the transfer of organic matter within the deep-pelagic zone, the planet's largest cumulative ecosystem.
Commented checklist of marine fishes from the Galicia Bank seamount (NW Spain).
TLDR
The results obtained showing a high fish biodiversity and a sensible number of threatened species, strongly support the future declaration of the Galicia Bank as a Marine Protected Area.
Comparative innervation of cephalic photophores of the loosejaw dragonfishes (Teleostei: Stomiiformes: Stomiidae): Evidence for parallel evolution of long‐wave bioluminescence
TLDR
The totality of evidence suggests that the only known far‐red bioluminescent system in vertebrates has evolved as many as three times in a closely related group of deep‐sea fishes.
A critical appraisal of appendage disparity and homology in fishes
TLDR
Identifying homologies of morphological traits across large phylogenetic scales is not always straightforward, as many structures are likely to have accrued changes in morphology and function over evolutionary time.
Exploring feeding behaviour in deep-sea dragonfishes (Teleostei: Stomiidae): jaw biomechanics and functional significance of a loosejaw
TLDR
Investigation of the kinematic properties and performance of lower-jaw adduction in stomiid fishes and the results reveal that the loosejaw condition is an adaptation that expands the morphological boundaries imposed by the dynamic limitations of a long jaw.
Additional Records of Deep-sea Fishes from off Greater New England
Abstract A recent review of deep-sea fishes captured deeper than 200 m off greater New England, from the Scotian Shelf at 44°N to the southern New England Shelf at about 38°N, documented 591 species.

An annotated list of 591 species in 132 families that live below 200 meters in the area between the Scotian Shelf and the southern New England Shelf south to about 38½N is presented.
Species Composition, Abundance, and Vertical Distribution of the Stomiid (Pisces: Stomiiformes) Fish Assemblage of the Gulf of Mexico
TLDR
Species composition, abundance, and vertical distribution of the stomiid fish assemblage were investigated in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, and abundance results suggest that stomiids are the dominant mesopelagic upper-trophic level predatory level predatory fish in these ecosystems.
FEEDING HABITS OF STOMIATOID FISHES FROM HAWAIIAN WATERS
TLDR
Based on feeding incidence and estimates of stomach evacuation time, the piscivorous stomiatoids appear to consume a large fraction of the standing crop of plank­ ti vorous fishes each year.
