  title={Glossanodon kotakamaru, a New Argentine Fish from Southern Japan (Protacanthopterygii: Argentinidae)},
  author={Hiromitsu Endo and Kazuya Nashida},
A new species of argentinid, Glossanodon kotakamaru, is described on the basis of 11 specimens (57-125 mm SL) from Tosa Bay and off Amami Oshima Island, southern Japan. The new species differs from its congeners in having the following combination of characters: dorsal- fin rays 12-13; anal-fin rays 11-13; pectoral-fin rays 21-23; pelvic-fin rays 13-14; branchiostegal rays 5; gill-rakers on first arch 37-40; vertebrae 49-50; 2-4 small conical teeth on middle of lower jaws and 1-3 on tongue…

Larvae and juveniles of the argentinid, Glossanodon lineatus, with comments on ontogenetic pattern in the genus
Comparison of two species of the genus Glossanodon revealed clear differences in their ontogenetic patterns, suggesting that the Argentinidae may be divided into two groups: one that retains larval characters at settlement; and one that transforms abruptly.
On the distribution of Glossanodon mildredae (Argentinidae) in the Indian Ocean
At the present time, 12 species are included into the genus Glossanodon (Kobylyanskii, 1998). Glossanodon mildreadae was described by Cohen and Atsaides (1969) from the type series of 5 individuals

Spawning seasons of adult and growth of 0-year-old deepsea smelt Glossanodon semifasciatus in Tosa Bay [Japan], Pacific coast of Shikoku
The growth rate of the 0-year-old fish in Tosa Bay is higher than that estimated for the sub-population in the Sea of Japan, possibly due to the higher temperature of the nursery ground of the TosaBay.
