Jones, S (1965) Comments on the so-called rare marine fishes of the genera Dactyloptena Jordan and Richardson and Lepidotrigla Gunther recently reported from Madras. Journal of Marine Biological Association of India, 7 (1). pp. 124-126.
Three fishes viz., Brotula jerdoni Day, Lepidotrigla spiloptera Gunther and Dactyloptena orientalis (Cuvier) have been recently reported upon as rare and interesting based on the material collected from Madras by the Zoological Survey of India (Menon and Rao, 1963). Of these B. jerdoni has only a limited distributional record and is stated to be under further study and as such does not call for any comments. With regard to the other two species a number of references published subsequent to those cited by them in their paper have come to my notice and a few of the relevent ones are given here with some comments on the species for the benefit of those interested.
