New species of the toad plunderfish of the “albipinna” group, genus Pogonophryne (Artedidraconidae) from the Ross Sea (Antarctica)

Article

Abstract

A new species Pogonophryne pallida sp. n. belonging to the albipinna group of species is described. The holotype of the new species that was caught in the Ross Sea at a depth of 1331–1505 m is distinguished from the other species of the group by its structure of the mental barbel, body proportions, and coloration. A key has been compiled for the species of the albipinna group.
