Abstract:Two species of eels of the subfamily Dysomminae, family Synaphobranchidae are recorded for the first time from Hawaiian waters. Dysomma brevirostre (Facciolà) was previously known only from the Atlantic. The Hawaiian specimen does not differ significantly from Atlantic specimens. Dysomma muciparus (Alcock) was known previously only from the two syntypes from the Indian Ocean. The two Hawaiian specimens differ slightly from the types in number of vertebrae and lateral-line pores, but these differences are not considered of specific significance.
