The largest specimen known (standard length, 314 mm) of the ceratioid genus Gigantactis was collected off New Smyrna Beach, Florida, in 210 fathoms. A detailed description is presented from measurements and examination of the intact specimen. Since the specimen is no longer available no name is proposed for the species.

A brief discussion of the gigantactinids is given with reference to the present record and the principal literature reviews of the group.
