Abstract: Two new species of deep-sea cardinalfish are described from
specimens that were collected in Hawaiian waters. Epigonus glossodontus and
E. devaneyi have fewer lateral-line scales than all known congeners except
E. o/igolepis, to which they are most closely related. Epigonus glossodont us has
two or three large, anteriorly projecting teeth on each side of the symphysis of the
lower jaw, and both species have scales on the upper part of the snout. A key to
the Hawaiian species of Epigonus is provided.
