Four species are added to the Tasmanian list: Kyphosus sydneyanus (Gunther) (Kyphosidae), Kyphosus gibsoni Ogilby, Zebrias fasciata Macleay (first Tasmanian representative of Soleidae), Navodon degeni (Regan) (Aluteridae); accounts are given of material on which the records are based. General observations are made on: Muraeniahthys breviaeps Gunther (Echelidae: correlation of body ratios with total length), Muraeniahthys tasmaniensis McCulloch (new material, comparison with M. t. smithi Whitley), Mitotiahthys tuakeri (Scott) (Syngnathidae: new material), Zeus faber Linne (Zeidae: young example), Cyttus australis (Gunther) (Zeidae: specific determination in terms of some commonly employed criteria), Enoptosus armatus (White) (Enoplosidae: sample of 29 juveniles, table of dimensions, relative growth, coloration), Katsuwonus petamis Linne (Katsuwonidae: specimen from Tamar river, disposition of finlets), Lophoneates gattus Gunther (Bothidae: comparison with published accounts), Braahioniahthys hirsutus (Lacepede) (Brachionichthyidae: northern Tasmanian material).
