Abstract

The manefishes of the family Caristiidae are rare, poorly known deep-sea species with broad geographical distribution. This study provides new information on the diversity and distribution of this family around the oceanic islands and seamounts off northeastern Brazil, reporting the first records of Paracaristius nudarcus, Platyberyx andriashevi, Platyberyx paucus and Platyberyx pietschi in Brazilian waters. Measurements and counts for all specimens examined are provided and compared with those available in the literature. In addition, the identity of caristiids previously reported from Brazil is discussed.
