Abstract

A new species of abyssal eelpout is described from two specimens trawled north-west of Rabaul, New Britain. It is the second species of the genus Dieidolycus, previously thought to be endemic to the antarctic. The new species is distinguished from its congener by its fewer pectoral-fin rays and more posterior dorsal-fin origin.
