  • O. S. Voskoboinikova
  • M. V. Nazarkin


New genus of cyclopterids, Georgimarinus gen. nov., is established for Eumicrotremus barbatus (Lindberg et Legeza, 1955). The new genus is characterized by the next unique apomorphies: teeth in the outer row at symphysis of premaxillae fuse with premaxillae, teeth at symphysis of dentary fuse among themselves and with dentary, forming the regular cutting edge; there are numerous barbs on the head and body; the bony plaques located in centers of connective tissue tubercles leaving the edges free.
