Title: Osteology and Relationships of the Eel Diastobranchus capensis (Pisces, Synaphobranchidae) 
Author: Castle, PHJ
Date: 1975-04
Publisher: University of Hawai'i Press
Citation: Castle PHJ. 1975. Osteology and relationships of the eel Diastobranchus capensis (Pisces, Synaphobranchidae). Pac Sci 29(2): 159-163.
Abstract: An osteological comparison of Diastobranchus (using its single species
D. capensis Barnard, 1923, known only from the Southern Ocean) with other
synaphobranchoid eels shows that it is intermediate between Synaphobranchus and
Ilyophis (Synaphobranchidae). The Simenchelyidae is more generalized, whereas
the Dysommidae contain the more specialized of the Synaphobranchoidei.
