Abstract

The musculoskeletal anatomy of "Iso rhothophilus" is described. A phylogenetic analysis of the genus, using eleven anatomical dlaracters, indicates that the systematic hierarchy is ("Iso flosmaris" ("I. nesiotes" ("I. rhothophilus" ("I. hawaiiensis", "I. natalensis")))). Isonidae Rosen, 1964 is redefined and, on the basis of twenty characters (autapomorphic within Atheriniformes) shown to be distinct from Notocheiridae Schultz, 1950.
