Lanternfishes of the genus Diaphus collected during cruises ESSCHA, NECTAlis, PUFFAlis and WALLAlis of RV Alis in the tropical southwestern Pacific

Abstract

The present study aimed at updating a checklist of the Lanternfishes species of the genus Diaphus occurring in the tropical southwestern Pacific, based on material collected from six recent oceanographic cruises of R.V. Alis in the Coral Sea, the Fiji Basin and the Wallis-and-Futuna EEZ. Diaphus spp. samples were obtained using pelagic trawlnets. The vouchered Diaphus spp. material included 20 known species. Specimens morphologically closest to D. termophilus and belonging to a possibly undescribed species were also sampled from the Wallis-and-Futuna waters, highlighting persisting gaps in our knowledge of this ecologically important group of fishes. Our collection of specimens, all preserved for DNA extraction, will be useful to complementing the current Diaphus barcode database for the tropical southwestern Pacific.
