The present paper has the same general aims as, and may be regarded as being a continuation of, a previous contribution by the writer (1934): its precise scope is summarized in the concluding paragraph. Registration numbers are those of the Queen Victoria Museum, Launceston. Family HEMISCYLLIIDAE Genus Parascyllium sp. nov. Parascyllium multimaculatum, sp. nov. 
GNATHANACANTHIDAE. The sole representative of this family, Gnathanacanthus goetzeei Bleeker, 1855, specified in the last century as the type of three different genera by Dutch, English and AustralianExpand
Syngnathus parvicarinatus, a New Australian Pipefish, with Notes on S. sauvagei (Whitley) and Leptonotus caretta (Klunzinger)
The use of proteolytic enzymes for the mapping of structural rearrangements in the chromosomes of man and their significance in Acrididae, Locustidae, and Grylidae: chromosomes and variation is described. Expand
A revision of the Australian handfishes (Lophiiformes: Brachionichthyidae), with descriptions of three new genera and nine new species
The family Brachionichthyidae is represented by at least 14 small, Australian endemic, lophiiform fishes distributed from central eastern Australia to the Great Australian Bight, making them amongst the most vulnerable of marine fishes. Expand
A second New Zealand species of the stargazer genus Kathetostoma (Trachinoidei: Uranoscopidae)
A new species of the uranoscopid genus Kathetostoma Gunther, 1860, is described from New Zealand waters, where it is broadly sympatric with its sole local congener K. giganteum Haast, 1873. The newExpand
Revision of the fish family Kyphosidae (Teleostei: Perciformes).
The distribution of Kyphosus species is reconsidered based on the taxonomic revision, indicating that four species occur in both the Atlantic and Indo-Pacific regions and four species (K. bigibbus, K. cinerascens,K. cornelii, k. hawaiiensis and K. vaigiensis) occur in either the Atlantic or Indo- Pacific regions.

Synopsis of the Indo-Pacific Genus Solegnathus (Pisces: Syngnathidae)
Significant gaps remain in knowledge of intraspecific variation, distribution, preferred habitat,ecological requirements, and general biology of the solegnathines. Expand
Revision of the Scolecenchelys gymnota species group with descriptions of two new species (Anguilliformes: Ophichthidae: Myrophinae)
Scolecenchelys iredalei is newly regarded as a valid species, but Muraenichthys erythraeensis Bauchot and Maugé 1980, Muraeensis japonicus Machida and Ohta 1993, and Muraesmaniensis McCulloch 1911 known as valid species formerly are junior synonyms of S. iredALEi, S. aoki, and S. australis. Expand
Phylogeny and phylogeography of the family Kyphosidae (Perciformes: Teleostei)
Synonyms among Atlantic and Indo-Pacific taxa show that several sea chub species are more widespread than previously thought. Expand
The evolution and physiology of male pregnancy in syngnathid fishes
The taxonomic distribution of syngnathid parity mode is assayed, the selective pressures that may have led to the emergence of male pregnancy are examined, the biology of synathids reproduction is described, and pressing areas for future research are highlighted. Expand
