|Abstract:||Regan (1916: 140, pI. 7, fig. 5) based the description
of a distinctive new eel larva, Leptocephalus
acuticeps, on a single 47-mm specimen
from the South Atlantic. He did not attempt to
allocate this larva within the eel classification,
but D'Ancona (1928: 109) and Bertin (1936:7)
assigned it to the Congridae. Although no additional
specimens of 1. acuticeps appear to have
been reported since the brief original description,
Bertin re-examined the original larva and
gave important supplementary information on
it, and an additional illustration.
