Revision of the fish family Kyphosidae (Teleostei: Perciformes).

  title={Revision of the fish family Kyphosidae (Teleostei: Perciformes).},
  author={Steen Wilhelm Knudsen},
A molecular phylogenetic analysis with complete species sampling of the family Kyphosidae revealed several discrepancies with the current taxonomy. We thus undertook a complete taxonomic revision of all kyphosid genera, i.e. Kyphosus Lacepède, 1801, and the monotypic Hermosilla Jenkins and Evermann, 1889, Sectator Jordan and Evermann, 1903 and Neoscorpis Smith, 1931. Species delimitation was determined on the basis of congruence between (a) monophyletic groupings in the molecular phylogeny, and… 
A new genus and species of the trematode family Gyliauchenidae Fukui, 1929 from an unexpected, but plausible, host, Kyphosus cornelii (Perciformes: Kyphosidae)
There is sufficient morphological evidence, combined with the unusual host, to consider the first species of gyliauchenid known from a kyphosid distinct from these genera, and molecular phylogenetic analyses place the new species close to those of Affecauda Hall & Chambers, 1999 and Flagellotrema Ozaki, 1936.
Gorgocephalidae (Digenea: Lepocreadioidea) in the Indo-West Pacific: new species, life-cycle data and perspectives on species delineation over geographic range
Evidence is provided that G. yaaji is distributed from South Africa to French Polynesia, spanning the breadth of the Indo-West Pacific, and has significant relevance regarding digenean species delineation over geographic range.
We present a comprehensive and update checklist systematic of the icthyofauna of this insular region, which is comprised by 366 species, 241 genera, 101 families, 28 orders and tree classes. The
A new classification for deep-sea opecoelid trematodes based on the phylogenetic position of some unusual taxa from shallow-water, herbivorous fishes off south-west Australia
Two deep-sea opecoelids represented by sequence data, Neolebouria lanceolata and Podocotyloides brevis, remain inadequately accommodated and may require another new subfamily, but it is not yet clear which morphological and/or ecological characters would distinguish such a concept.
A new record of the brassy chub, Kyphosus vaigiensis (Actinopterygii: Perciformes: Kyphosidae), from the Mediterranean Sea
One individual of the brassy chub, Kyphosus vaigiensis (Quoy et Gaimard, 1825) (41.5 cm TL, 1.27 kg TW), was caught off Annaba, on the eastern coasts of Algeria in December 2013. This circumtropical
Fishes collected during the 2017 MarineGEO assessment of Kāne‘ohe Bay, O‘ahu, Hawai‘i
The results of a survey of the fishes of Kāne‘ohe Bay, O‘ahu, conducted in 2017 as part of the Smithsonian Institution MarineGEO Hawaii bioassessment verify the hypothesis that Hawaiian populations of species broadly distributed throughout the Indo-Pacific may be genetically distinct.
Annotated checklist of fishes from Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary with notes on extralimital species
This represents the first comprehensive annotated checklist of 507 fishes known to occur within the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, including justification for each species.
Mesophotic ecosystems at Fernando de Noronha Archipelago, Brazil (South-western Atlantic), reveal unique ichthyofauna and need for conservation
Nineteen fish species belonging to 14 families are reported here as new records, representing an increase of 8.2% in marine fish richness for the region, which now has a total of 250 species and 77 families.
An update to the inventory of shore-fishes from the Parque Nacional Sistema Arrecifal Veracruzano, Veracruz, México
Abstract Data on marine and brackish-water fishes recorded in the area of the Parque Nacional Sistema Arrecifal Veracruzano in the southwest Gulf of Mexico were extracted from online aggregators of
