A New Species of Dactylopteridae (Pisces) from the Philippines and Australia, with a Brief Synopsis of the Family
Abstract:A new species of helmet gurnard, Dactyloptena tiltoni. is described from the Philippines (type locality) and western Australia. It differs from the other species of the family by having a more pointed snout and multiple transverse ridges on its scales on the upper sides (rather than one strong transverse ridge). The family is represented in the Atlantic Ocean by Dactylopterus volitans, and in the Indo-Pacific by six species in the genus Dactyloptena.
