dc.description.abstract "A new Macristium-like larval fish is compared with published accounts of specimens previously assigned to the Macristiidae and with known myctophoid larvae. It is concluded that the new Macristium-like larva and all of the macristiids are myctophoids, and it is hypothesized that together they represent larval and juvenile bathysaurids and ipnopids or forms closely related to these families. The implications of that conclusion for ctenothrissiform classification are discussed"--P. 20. en_US
