One new species is added to the Tasmanian list; Amrnotretis elongatus McCulloch, 1914,
from Goose Island, Furneaux Group, Bass Strait.
A detailed account, with table of dimensions, is given for two examples of
Trygonorrhina fasciata Muller & Henle, 1841 (rulinobatidae). It has hitherto been assumed
the Tasmanian fiddler ray is the typical subspecies: however, the present paterial is
determined as T. f. guanerius Whitley, 1932.
Other species noted are: Dinolestes lewini (Griffith, 1834) (Apogonidae), general
specifications of a sample of eight specimens, with extensions of published meristic and
morphometric ranges, Beryx decadactylus Cuvier, 1829, B. decadactylus (Gunther, 1859)
(Berycidae), Paratrachichthys trailli (Hutton, 1875) (Trachichthydae), the treatment of the
last three species including detailed morphometry and various aspects of body form, with
some comparison between them.
