ANGUILLIDAE. Anguilla australis Richardson, 1841: a xanthic example is reported.
TRACHIPTERIDAE. (a) Trachipterus arawatae Clarke, 1881: two large dealfish catalogued as T. jacksonensis (Ramsay, 1881) are described and figured and their taxonomic status is considered, with special reference to differential growth in T. arawatae and in the present material, it being concluded Ramsay's species is a senior synonym of Clarke's; (b) Zu cristatus (Bonelli, 1820): a Tasmanian specimen previously referred provisionally to this species is here definitively ascribed to it and is made the subject of some additional observations.
BOVICHTHYIDAE. Bovichthus variegatus Richardson, 1846: several good series from Greens Beach, northern Tasmania, allow the study of growth and form in a geographically homogeneous population. ATTENNARIIDAE. Kuiterichthys furcipilis (Cuvier, 1817): observations are made on this species, recently added to the Tasmanian list.
