First the description of osteology and some morphological characters of the oceanic percoid, Howella sherborni, is given. Specific traits of Howella include features of the skullcap, bulla otica, and periocular bones, specific spiking of opercular bones, denticular contact of cerato-and epihyale from both sides, the presence of three rays on epihyale, and limited dental plates on basoibranchialia 2–3 and on lower pharyngeal bones; the presence of one strong spike on posttemporale, 1½ radialia… 
The osteology of Bathysphyraenops symplex and the diagnosis of the Howellidae (Perciformes: Percoidei) family
TLDR
The osteological distinctions of Bathysphyraemops simplex from Howella sherborni found for the first time are small and the author believes that some of them may make a case of interspecies variation within these genera.
Osteology of Florenciella lugubris (Percoidei: Epigonidae)
TLDR
Florenciella is more advanced in comparison with Epigonus having such characters as presence of enlarged, directed to sides and/or forward symphyseal teeth in jaws, of finely and densely denticulatd edges of infraorbitalia 2–8 and of the orbiral edge of frontale.
Morphological evidence supporting the monophyly of the family Polynemidae (Teleostei: Perciformes) and its sister relationship with Sciaenidae
The monophyly of Polynemidae was evaluated and its sister relationship with Sciaenidae discussed, based on osteological and myological characters from 24 polynemid species in eight genera, with
Osteology of †Heteronectes chaneti (Acanthomorpha, Pleuronectiformes), An Eocene Stem Flatfish, with a Discussion of Flatfish Sister-Group Relationships
TLDR
It is suggested that orbital migration was among the earliest of the distinctive pleuronectiform features to arise and should be the target of future analyses to determine whether they represent symplesiomorphies, homoplasies, or derived features uniting flatfishes and latids.
Revision of the genus Verilus (Perciformes: Acropomatidae) with a description of a new species.
The acropomatid genus Verilus is redescribed as a senior synonym of Apogonops and Neoscombrops with description of a new species and a taxonomic revision of the five species that were formerly
Morphology and evolution of bioluminescent organs in the glowbellies (Percomorpha: Acropomatidae) with comments on the taxonomy and phylogeny of Acropomatiformes
TLDR
The anatomy of the bioluminescent organs in Haneda's glowbelly and the Glowbelly is described and the familial taxonomy of the Acropomatidae was modified such that the previously described Malakichthyidae and Synagropidae were recognized.
The Jaw Adductor Muscle Complex in Teleostean Fishes: Evolution, Homologies and Revised Nomenclature (Osteichthyes: Actinopterygii)
TLDR
The present study analyzed multiple morphological attributes of the adductor mandibulae in representatives of 53 of the 55 extant teleostean orders, as well as significant information from the literature in order to elucidate the homologies of the main subdivisions of this muscle.
Divergent skull morphology between trophic separated lacustrine forms of Dolly Varden charr from Lake Kronotskoe, Kamchatka, Russia
TLDR
The strongest morphological differences between these two charr forms were associated with the jaw bone structures, closely linked with their different trophic niches measured by the contence of stable isotope values in the tissues.
Prolonged morphological expansion of spiny-rayed fishes following the end-Cretaceous
TLDR
The results indicate that several million years after the end-Cretaceous, acanthomorphs underwent a prolonged and significant expansion of morphological disparity primarily driven by changes in body elongation, and that acanthomorphic lineages containing the bulk of the living species diversity originated throughout the Cenozoic.
