Thornfish

provided by wikipedia EN

The thornfishes are a family, Bovichtidae, of fishes in the order Perciformes. The family is spelled Bovichthyidae in J. S. Nelson's Fishes of the World. They are native to coastal waters off Australia, New Zealand, and South America, and to rivers and lakes of southeast Australia and Tasmania.

Phylogenetic analysis of morphological characters has revealed that the family Bovichtidae is not a monophyletic group.[2][3]

Genera

Currently, three genera are included in this family, with the genus Pseudaphritis (Castelnau, 1872) now being placed in its own family, Pseudaphtitidae.[1][4]
