Abstract

A new species of the antennariid anglerfish genus Lophiocharon, L. hutchinsi, is described on the basis of nine specimens collected from Western Australia, Northern Territory, and Queensland, and from the Aru Islands, Indonesia. It differs from its congeners in having a combination of features that includes a reduced esca, scarcely, if at all, differentiated from the illicium, and a relatively short illicium covered from base to tip with small dermal spinules.
