Abstract

The morphology of the pectoral girdle and fin of Anguillidae is reconsidered via the inclusion of skeletal components that have previously been unassessed. For example, the pectoral girdle and fin in Anguilla were erroneously reported to lack a scapular bone, a cartilaginous scapulocoracoid plate and a cartilaginous propterygium. The pectoral morphology of Anguilla is also compared with the closely related genus Nemichthys, including additional data on the anatomy of this eel family. (AU)
