Another one arrived today; pics soon enough when we defrost it. It's been a few months since we saw one.
I was completely wrong with the rattail ID . It turned out to be Caelorinchus aspercephalus, but you knew that anyway...Infusoria;81250 said:The rattail in question (there were 3) turns out to be Caelorinchus maurifasciatus, about which virtaully nothing is known. As far as I know, all that is known about this species is the original paper describing it. I'll be doing gut-content analysis on them later this week. There was also a barracudina in there as well. These fish were bycatch that just got caught up with the squid in the trawl net.
