Abstract

The syngnathine (tail-pouch) genus Stigmatopora (type-species: Syngnathus argus Richardson) is rediagnosed and compared to other pipefishes with confluent superior trunk and tail ridges. Descriptions, illustrations, key, synonymies and data on variation and distribution are given for the three recognized species: S. argus (Australia), S. nigra (Australia and New Zealand), S. macropterygia (New Zealand and Auckland Is.).
