Abstract

Mendosoma gay-
one dorsal fin deeply notched, with twenty-two spines -
Mendosoma allporti. New sp. - head small, pointed. cheeks scaly.
Height of body is 3 1/4 in the total length. It is known to fishermen as " The Real
Bastard Trumpeter," and vies with the latter in delicacy of
flavour. The only fish allied to this species seems to be
M. lineatum, Gay, from the coast of Chili. It is interesting
to know that the only other species of the genus is to be
found on the coast of Tasmania.
