[[ Pachycara Zugmayer ZBK ]]

Fishes of the eelpout genus Pachycara ZBK inhabit the upper slopes and abyssal plains of most regions, but are notably absent in the western Pacific, Mediterranean Sea and Arctic Ocean (Anderson 1989). Seven species have been described since the senior author’s 1989 paper ( Møller 2003; Anderson and Fedorov, 2004; Biscoito and Almeida, 2004). Less than half (38%) of the species occur in the bathyal zone; the rest are abyssal.
