The morphology of the early stage of Eumegistus was described from three specimens [E. brevorti: 23.0 mm in standard length (SL) juvenile; E. illustris: 5.8 mm SL postflexion larva, and 40.0 mm SL juvenile] recently rediscovered in museum collections. Larval and juvenile pigmentation patterns were reported for the first time for this genus. The 5.8 mm SL postflexion larva of E. illustris had pigmentation on the head and anterior half of the body, through to the middle of the dorsal fin base. In… Expand

Larval development of bigmouth manefish Caristius macropus (Perciformes: Caristiidae) from the western North Pacific
TLDR
The present study and other occurrences of early life stages of the species probably indicate that C. macropus may spawn over a wide area in the North Pacific. Expand
First report of rare pomfrets (Teleostei: Bramidae) from Brazilian waters, with a key to Western Atlantic species
TLDR
This paper records for the first time the occurrence of two genera and species of Bramidae in Brazilian waters: the tropical pomfret Eumegistus brevorti and the keeltail pomFret Taractes rubescens and P. brama, the only known area of the world where two species of Pterycombus are found together.

Distinctive characters between Eumegistus brevorti (Poey, 1860) and Eumegistus illustris Jordan and Jordan, 1922 (Perciformes: Bramidae)
TLDR
Meristic characters for E. illustris and E. brevorti coincide with those from the Northern Hemisphere, except in the number of scales above lateral line. Expand
A new species of the Oligocene pomfret fish Paucaichthys (Perciformes; Bramidae) from Iran
A new species of the family Bramidae, Paucaichthys elamensis sp. nov., is described from the Oligocene of the Elam locality (Iran). The new species is represented by a single juvenile specimen thatExpand

TLDR
This monotypic new genus is widely distributed in the high seas of the South Pacific, but is rather rare compared to Brama spp. Expand
