In Part 1 of these Observations (Scott, 1936), devoted to a taxo- nomic survey of the family, with descriptions of new species, the hope was expressed that in succeeding parts it would be found possible to consider the Tasmanian Galaxiidae described prior to 1936. The present contribution contains some biometric observations on the widely distributed Galaxias (Galaxias) attenuatus (Jenyns), relating Chiefly to frequency distribution of standard length, including seasonal variations; rate… Expand

A consideration of the whitebait stage of Galaxias maculatus attenuatus (Jenyns)
TLDR
The size composition of a season's catch of Galaxias maculatus attenuatus (Jenyns) whitebait supports the theory that these fish have reached a physiological stage at which they migrate up accessible freshwater streams and undergo metamorphosis. Expand
The galaxiid fishes of South America
TLDR
The galaxiids are regarded as southern circumpolar elements in the South American freshwater fish fauna, distinct from the group of species of Amazonian derivation (trichomycterids, Nematogenys, Diplomystes, Cheirodon, etc.) and distinct also from oceanic derivatives, either recent (atherinids) or ancient (serranids).

The Canterbury mudfish, Galaxias burrowsius Phillipps, a vanishing species
Summary Examination of available samples and of ecological knowledge of Galaxias burrowsius Phillipps (Galaxiidae) suggests that this species is confined to the Canterbury Plains and is now nearlyExpand
SOME ECOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF THE SPAWNING BEHAVIOUR AND EARLY DEVELOPMENT OF THE COMMON WHITEBAIT . GALAX / AS MACULATUS ATTENUATUS ( JENYNS ) VIVIENNE BENZIE
It may seem unorthodox to begin a paper that purports to describe the ecology of the early stages of the fish, Galaxias maculatus attenuatus (Jenyns), (taxonomy revised by Stokell, 1966), with aExpand
The Chatham Islands endemic galaxiid: A Neochanna mudfish (Teleostei: Galaxiidae)
TLDR
Re‐examination of specimens of the endemic galaxiid from Lake Tuku a Taupo, Chatham Islands, and of specimens recently collected from the nearby Lake Rakeinui, suggests that fish from the two lakes are conspecific, and that they belong in the mudfish genus Neochanna. Expand
Observations on the Tasmanian mudfish, Galaxias cleaveri (Pisces: Galaxiidae)
Meristic and morphometric comparisons are made of the three known populations of the Tasmanian mudfish; mainland Tasmania, Flinders Island and Victoria. The results of observations on the ecologyExpand
Affinities, generic classification and biogeography of the Australian and New Zealand mudfishes (Salmoniformes: Galaxiidae).
TLDR
The Australian mudfish, Galaxias cleaveri, resembles the three New Zealand mudfishes (Neochanna spp.) in general external morphology, but unique specialisations in the vomerine-ethmoid region of the cranium and in the form of the pectoral girdle support the view that these four species are a monophyletic group.

Fifteen from one: a revision of the Galaxias olidus Günther, 1866 complex (Teleostei, Galaxiidae) in south-eastern Australia recognises three previously described taxa and describes 12 new species.
TLDR
Nine species are narrow-range endemics, known from one, or only a few, locations, and these restricted distributions most probably reflect the fragmentation and reduction of former ranges caused by the effects of alien salmonids. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships in a small group of diminutive galaxiid fishes and the evolution of sexual dimorphism
TLDR
Analysis of diverse morphological characters supports combined monophyly of the diminutive galaxiid genera Brachygalaxias and Galaxiella, both of which are monophyletic. Expand
Native Freshwater Fish
As stressed in chapter III, Tasmania possesses both an abundance of fresh water and a diversity of freshwater environments. Nevertheless, the native freshwater fish fauna is relatively small and itExpand
