Other species are discussed as follows. Syngnathidae: Stigmatopora nigra Kaup, 1856 (supernumerary opercular keels), Syngnathus curtirostris Castelnau, 1872 (dimensions and proportions, meristic features including data on termination and origin of body ridges, regional intensity of ground color). Neoodacidae: comparative observations on all Tasmanian species except Neoodax attenuatus (Ogilby), 1897. Clinidae: Clinus perspicillatus Cuvier & Valenciennes, 1836 (dorsal and anal radial patterns, tentacles), Clinus puellarum Scott, 1955 (general account of a third Tasmanian specimen) , Petraites heptaeolus (Ogilby), 1885 (further records), Petraites johnstoni (Saville-Kent), 1886 (tentacles), Petraites jorsteri (Castelnau), 1872 (tentacles), Cristiceps australis Cuvier & Valenciennes, 1836 (tentacles).
