Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The jellynose fishes or tadpole fishes are the small order Ateleopodiformes. This group of ray-finned fish is monotypic, containing a single family Ateleopodidae. It has about one dozen species in four genera, but these enigmatic fishes are in need of taxonomic revision.The scientific name means "Ateleopus-shaped," from Ateleopus (the type genus) + the standard fish order suffix "-formes." It ultimately derives from Ancient Greek atel s, the Greek part in reference to the reduced pectoral and ventral fins of the jellynoses.show more
