  • A new species of eelpout genus Lycenchelys Gill, 1884 is described based on seven specimens caught at a depth of about 2350 m in the Bussol Strait, southwest of the Kuril Island Simushir. The species differs from its congeners in the following combination of characters: vertebrae 26-28 + 100-102 = 126-130; interorbital and occipital pores absent; postorbital pores 3-4; suborbital pores 7 (rarely 6); preoperculomandibular pores 4 + 4; gill rakers 11-16; dorsal fin rays 118-122; anal fin rays 105… CONTINUE READING
