Abstract

The present paper was suggested by the occurrence on the coast of New South Wales of a specimen of Schedophilus maculatus, this being the first record for the genus from Australian waters, and the time has been deemed opportune to review the history, such as it is, of the various species, the more especially that these pelagic forms are liable to occur at any time upon any part of the Australian coast, and, where so little is known of them, it is advisable that no opportunity should be lost of recording any fresh facts in connection with their distribution and mode of life.

The genus Schedophilus was originally placed by Günther among the Coryphaenina, at that time considered to be a Group of the Scombridae, but subsequently accorded family rank.
