Abstract

Following a comparative analysis of the morphological characters of the representatives of the genera Petroschmidtia and Lycodes, some previously proposed diagnostic characters of Petroschmidtia are confirmed and ascertained and several additional characters are suggested. The conclusion on the taxonomic validity of the genus Petroschmidtia is confirmed. Petroschmidtia differs from Lycodes in the following features: teeth and tooth plates on the vomer and palatinum are lacking; bone fontanels of the supraorbital canal on the frontale are lacking; the vomer is shortened; the ethmoidalia lateralia are narrowed, bearing a pocketlike cavity inside the lateral lobes; the fan-like expanded outgrowth of the supraoccipitale is short, blunt; the dentale is shortened; the radialia are dorsoventrally flattened, the lowest of which is the largest. The genus Petroschmidtia is assumed to be morphologically more closely related to Lycodes than any other of the Lycodinae.
