Notes:
See collett's paper: fiske fra nordhars exp. 1879, p.48. collett (1879) based his description on 15 large specimens (a-p) and 2 small ones (a-b) from various localities. the usnm register indicates that this is specimen l, which collett (p. 48) measured as 342 mm tl. as far as we have been able to determine, no lectotype had been validly designated from among collett's syntypes, and we refrain from doing so as the lectotype should be designated from among the syntypes at zmuo, which houses collett's types. syntypes are also present in the bmnh, mnhn, and zmuc collections. schultz (1967:5) erroneously referred to the usnm syntype as "holotype". - remarks made by: v.g. springer and m.e. anderson, 12 june 1995.
