Neoscopelidae

The Neoscopelidae (blackchins or neoscopelids) are a small family of deep sea fish closely related to the lanternfish. They are found in tropical and subtropical marine waters worldwide.[1]

They can be distinguished from the lanternfish only by a few technical characters, such as the position of the anal fin being far behind that of the dorsal fin. Some, but not all, species also lack the light-emitting organs (photophores) of the lanternfish. They are typically between 20 centimetres (7.9 in) and 30 centimetres (12 in) in length.[2] One genus has photophores arranged in a single series along the edge of the tongue and one or two along the ventral surface of the body.

Species[edit source | edit]

There are just six known species of neoscopelid, grouped into three genera:[2]
