Abstract

The description of a new species of plunderfish, Pogonophryne skorai sp. n., is based on materials that were collected during expeditions on the research vessels Gizhiga and Professor Siedlecki to West Antarctica. The type specimens were caught near the South Shetland Islands and in the Bransfield Strait at depths of 360–490 m. The new species is described in comparison with other two species of the “marmorata” group of the genus Pogonophryne: P. platypogon Eakin, 1988, and the most closely related P. marmorata Norman, 1938.
