Abstract

Three species are added to the Tasmanian list: Ichthyocampus cristatus McCulloch & Waite, 1918 (Syngnathidae), Scorpis lineolatus Kner, 1865 (Scorpidae), Pseudolabrus parilis (Richardson), 1850 (Labridae): some general observations are made on these species. Coelorhynchus mortoni Ogilby. 1897 (Macruridae), relegated in the CheckList to the synonymy of C. australis (Richardson), 1849. is reinstated as a valid species, and a redescription and figure based on material from the West Coast, are supplied. Other species discussed are Raja whitleyi Iredale, 1938 (Rajidae) [metrical data on 17 examples], Vincentia lemprieri (Johnston). 1883 (Apogonidae) [new material], Neoplatycephalus speculator (Klunzinger), 1872 (Platycephalidae) [confirmation of Tasmanian status], Platycephalus bassensis bassensis Cuvier, 1829 (Platycephalidae) [variation in fin counts]. Tasmanian representatives of the families Scorpidae, Platycephalidae, and Australia and New Zealand species of the genus Coelorhynchus Giorna, 1809 are keyed.
