New World members of the Gobiesocinae (including Acyrtops, Acyrtus, Arcos, Derilissus, Gobiesox, Pherallodiscus, Rimicola, Sicyases, and Tomicodon) exhibit a heterodont oral dentition comprising two, and in some cases three, different types of teeth. The oral jaw teeth of New World gobiesocines are arranged in a series of 2–4 short staggered rows along the anterolateral margin of the premaxilla and dentary, to which new teeth are added posteriorly (rows 1–4) via shallow open crypts located… 
The evolution of specialized dentition in the deep‐sea lanternfishes (Myctophiformes)
The results indicate that heterodonty evolved at least six separate times on the oral jaws of lanternfishes, occurring as variable tooth morphologies in combination with villiform teeth.
A new genus and species of clingfish from the Rangitāhua Kermadec Islands of New Zealand (Teleostei, Gobiesocidae)
Flexorincus, new genus and species, is described from shallow intertidal and sub-tidal waters of the Rangitāhua Kermadec Islands, New Zealand and shares a number of characteristics of the oral jaws and the adhesive disc skeleton with certain members of the Aspasminae and Diademichthyinae.
Kopua minima (Döderlein 1887), a senior synonym of K. japonica Moore, Hutchins and Okamoto 2012, and description of a new species of Aspasma (Gobiesocidae)
A species commonly regarded as Aspasma minima is described as the new species AsPasma ubauo sp.
A New Genus and Species of Clingfish (Teleostei: Gobiesocidae) from Western Australia
The new taxon is distinguished from all other members of the Gobiesocidae by having vast fields of tiny conical teeth throughout the oral jaws that are arranged in multiple, regular rows along the lingual surface of the premaxilla and the dentary.
Otoliths in situ from Sarmatian (Middle Miocene) fishes of the Paratethys. Part IV: Scorpaenidae, Labridae, and Gobiesocidae
None of the species with otolith in situ described herein can be related to any of the known coeval isolated otolith-based species, although in the case of the scorpaenid, such correlation is hampered by the juvenile nature of the available specimens.
The Evolutionary Continuum of Functional Homodonty to Heterodonty in the Dentition of Halichoeres Wrasses.
It is shown that functionally heterodont teeth have evolved at least three times in Halichoeres wrasses, suggesting continuous dental variables can be a rich source of insight into the evolution of fish feeding mechanisms across a wider variety of species.
Functional implications of dentition-based morphotypes in piscivorous fishes
A quantitative framework is provided and dentition-based morphotypes for piscivorous fishes are established and it is suggested that tooth-based functional decoupling could exist, even in homodont vertebrates, where teeth have similar shapes.
The moment of tooth: rate, fate and pattern of Pacific lingcod dentition revealed by pulse-chase
It is proposed that lingcod teeth do not migrate in the jaw as they develop; their teeth are fated in size and location, erupting in their functional position.


Pharyngeal jaw morphology and homology in Sicydiine Gobies (Teleostei: Gobiidae) and allies
The highly modified fifth ceratobranchials of Stiphodon are similar to, and concluded here to be homoplasious with, those of the mudflat‐dwelling New World goby Evorthodus and the Indo‐west Pacific oxudercine gobies, represented in this study by Pseudapocryptes.
Functional and Developmental Morphology of Tooth Replacement in the Atlantic Wolffish, Anarhichas lupus (Teleostei: Zoarcoidei: Anarhichadidae)
It is predicted that teleosts with heterodont dentitions will have intraosseous tooth development because this offers a way to provide attachment for functional teeth while replacement teeth are developing.
Two new genera and two new species of clingfishes from Japan, with comments on head sensory canals of the Gobiesocidae
Two new genera and two new species will be described with the first description of Pherallodus indicus from Japan, which is described from newly collected larger specimens with accounts of unique head sensory canals.
Grouped Tooth Replacement in the Oral Jaws of the Tripletail, Lobotes surinamensis (Perciformes: Lobotidae), with a Discussion of Its Proposed Relationship to Datnioides
A mode of tooth replacement in Lobotes that is named “grouped” tooth replacement is described and illustrated, where lateral oral teeth are replaced intraosseously and in groups, although they are smaller and the groups are neither as distinct nor as regular.
A New Genus and Two New Species of Clingfishes (Gobiesocidae) from New Zealand
Modicus is proposed for two new species of clingfishes collected from 20-149 m of water around the New Zealand coastline. Characterized by gill filaments on the first 3 gill arches, gill membranes
Synonymy of the fish families Cheilobranchidae (=Alabetidae) and Gobiesocidae, with descriptions of two new species of Alabes
The genus Alabes, monotypic representative of the Cheilobranchidae, shares a large number of specializations with the members of the Gobiesocidae, including one not known to occur in any other fishes: the supracleithrum bears a shallow, concave process at its distal end that articulates with a convex condyle on the anterior surface of the cleithrum.
The evolution of pharyngognathy: a phylogenetic and functional appraisal of the pharyngeal jaw key innovation in labroid fishes and beyond.
This study provides a surprising, but well-supported, hypothesis for a convict-blenny sister group to the charismatic cichlids and new insights into the evolution of pharyngognathy.
A new species of the clingfish genus Apletodon (Teleostei: Gobiesocidae) from Sao Tome and Principe, Eastern Central Atlantic
The clingfish Apletodon wirtzi sp. nov. is described on the basis of ten specimens and colour photos from Bombom Island, Principe Group, Sao Tome and Principe, eastern central Atlantic Ocean. The
Position of Developing Replacement Teeth in Teleosts
A systematic documentation of the position of developing replacement teeth in teleost fishes is presented, based upon a literature review and examination of modern skeletal material, which indicates that extraosseous development of replacement teeth is plesiomorphic.
