REGALECIDAE. Regalecus glesne Ascanius, 1772: recent local stranding. TRACHIPTERIDAE. A comprehensive study has been made of seven Tasmanian dealfish determined as Trachipterus arawatae Clarke, 1881. Unfortunate misapprehensions by Australasian authors of the status of the genera Trachipterus Gouan, 1770, Desmodema Walters & Fitch, 1960 and Zu Walters & Fitch, 1960 have led to widespread and continued confusion regarding deal fishes in the local literature: a chronological synopsis of emended names is provided.
the genus Zu is here recorded for the first time from Australian waters, a specimen from Stanley being provisionally determined as Z. cristatus (Bonelli, 1820). EMMELICHTHYIDAE.
Emmelichthys nitidus Richardson, 1845: general observations on an example about two-thirds grown. PEMPHERIDAE. Parapriacanthus elongatus (McCulloch, 1911): general observations, special reference to coloration. SOLEIDAE. Zebrias fasciata (Macleay, 1882): two additional local records; some unusual features.
