Abstract

Fourteen species of Eustomias with two pectoral fin rays and short, branched barbels have been described from the North Atlantic, most of them based on single specimens. All but six of these nomimal species have at one time or another been placed in the synonymy of one of the others. Examination of many more specimens indicates that 11 of the 14 are valid species. Two of these have been reviewed previously. Of the nine considered here, Eustomias bigelowi, E. fissibarbis, E. macronema, E. satterleei, and E. schmidti are each represented by numerous specimens from throughout much of the Atlantic and Indo-Pacific. Eustomias binghami, E. paucifilis, E. silvescens, and E. triramis, some still represented by only one or a few specimens, are apparently confined to restricted areas of the North Atlantic. Two new species are described: E. borealis from the North Atlantic and E. curtifilis from the South Atlantic.
