The Nomeid Genus Cubiceps (Pisces) with a Description of a New Species
Abstract:Seven species of Cubiceps are recognized, based on dentition, the position of predorsal bones, and meristics. Teeth on the vomer are uniserial in Cubiceps baxteri McCulloch, C. capenis (Smith), and C. sqaumiceps (Lloyd). There is a broad knobby patch of vomerine teeth in C. caeruleus Regan, C. gracilis Lowe, and C. pauciradiatus. Teeth are absent on the vomer in C. paradoxus new species. The position of the predorsal bones in C. caeruleus and C. gracitis is unique among nomeids.
