Abstract

Ceratioid angler fishes recently collected from Australian waters and primarily housed at the Australian Museum, Sydney, represent eight of the 11 recognized families of the suborder, including 12 genera and 15 species, one of which is here described as new. These are listed below together with all additional records of ceratioids from Australian waters. Revised and supplemental diagnostic and descriptive data as well as notes on geographic distribution are included. Pending the chance of subsequent discovery of any as yet unrecorded ceratioids from Australian waters, diagnoses of all families of the Ceratioidei and references to all recent family revisions are provided.
