dc.description.abstract "The Phallostethidae (including Neostethidae) is a family comprised of approximately 20 species of small, fresh, brackish, and occasionally salt-water atherinomorph fishes of Indo-Australia. Phallostethids have variously been suggested as closest relatives of the atherinoid or cyprinodontiform fishes among the atherinomorphs, or of the polynemids or gobioids among the percomorphs. Phallostethids uniquely share several derived characters of the jaws and the anal fin with a group of Indo-Australian and Pacific atherinoids. The western Pacific Dentatherina Patten and Ivantsoff is proposed as the sister group of the Phallostethidae. The anatomy of Phallostethus Regan, the type genus, is poorly known because of the scarcity and unsatisfactory condition of available material. A report on the anatomy of Phallostethus dunckeri Regan, the sole species of the genus, based on examination of the syntypes and on unpublished notes and sketches is also included"--P. [1]. en_US
