No. 3. — Atlantic Deep-sea Fishes By N. a. Borodin The Museum of Comparative Zoology received in 1928 a collection of Atlantic deep-sea fishes from Mr. Columbus O'D. Iselin, a graduate of Harvard College and a student in Oceanography under Dr. Henry B. Bigelow. Mr. Iselin, assisted by eight other young men, mostly graduate students, made in 1928 an exploring trip across the Atlantic between New York, the Azores and England, on the schooner " Atlan-tis." He succeeded in collecting and preserving in excellent condition many deep-sea fishes, some of them of comparatively large size. This collection consists of 76 lots, among which are 32 species al-ready known ' and 6 which are new. Many rare specimens are repre-sented of species established by Brauer and Zugmayer, which are probably not represented in any American museum, including for example Macrostomias longibarbatus Brauer, Macropharynx longi-caudatus Brauer, Aleposomus cyaneus Zugmayer, Bregmaceros maccle-landi Thompson, and Tetragonurus cuvieri. This latter is indeed an interesting fish with its cuirass of scute-like scales and tobacco-box-like mouth. The six new species in the collection of 1928 were : Avocettina scapular ostris, p. 74, pi. 3, fig. 1-3. Derichthys iselini, p. 75, pi. 3, fig. 4-6. Lampanyctus peculiaris, p. 77. Melamphaes bericoides, p. 79. Pteraclis fasciaius, p. 84, pi. 4, fig. 2. Aphareus obtusirostris, p. 85, pi. 5, fig. 2. These have all been described in the Proc. New Eng. Zool. Soc, 10, 1929, p. 109-11. In 1929 another collection of deep-sea fishes was made by C. Iselin and R. McDonald during their cruise from Woods Hole, Massachusetts, to Bermuda. Although only five hauls were made they obtained 81 lots, which included 49 species already known.-Many other rare fishes were collected on this short trip, as for ex-Sivaph: I chthyoccus ovatus (Cocco) known only from the Mediterranean, eastern Atlantic and Indian Ocean; Nesiarchus nasutus Johnson, known only from Portugal and Madeira (a specimen 880 mm. long); Chaulio-1 Thirteen bottles of Myctophinae and fifteen bottles of Cyclolhone have been sent to Mr. A. E. Parr for study. -Two bottles of Myctophinae and seven bottles of Cyclolhone were sent to Mr. A. E. Parr for identification.
