Abstract

Bascanichthysys pinguis, Günther. We have received from Mr. C. Chute, an Ophichthyian Eel taken at Rose Bay, on the southern shores of Port J ackson. It is of the genus Bascanichthys, Jordan and Davis, and without doubt identical with Ophichthys pinguis, Günther. On mentioning this to Mr. J. D. Ogilby, he suggested that his Bascanichthys hemizona, might also be the same species: together we made the necessary comparison, and found it to be so. Mr. Chute's specimen is therefore the second record for Port Jackson. The species will be known as Bascanichthys pinguis, Günther, the type of which was described from the Solomon Islands.
