The occurrence of two lanternsharks of the genus etmopterus squalidae in taiwan



The occurrence of two lanternsharks of the genus etmopterus squalidae in taiwan



Japanese Journal of Ichthyology 39(1): 17-23



Two forms of the lanternshark, Etmopterus, reported from Taiwan waters under the name Etmopterus lucifer were reexamined. E. lucifer sensu Teng (1959), Chen (1963) and Shen and Ting (1972) does not conform to the original description of E. lucifer Jordan et Synder, 1902. One form described by Shen and Ting (1972) conforms to E. splendidus Yano, 1988, whereas another form reported by Teng (1959) and Chen (1963) agrees well with E. molleri (Whitley, 1939). These were identified based on a combination of the following characters: shape and length of the flank and caudal markings, position of the posterior end of flank markings, shape of the upper teeth, distributional patterns of dermal denticles on the second dorsal fin and preoral area, and length of the caudal peduncle.
