Abstract: This study analyzes the occurrence and distribution of lanternfish (Myctophidae) larvae along the Brazilian coast (12-22ºS) between 200 m and the surface. Three cruises were conducted during the spring/1998, winter/1999 and autumn/2000. A total of 3,394 lanternfish larvae were identified representing 27 species and Lepidophanes guentheri (Goode & Bean, 1896) was the most abundant. Most of the identified taxa were in the postflexion stage. Myctophid larvae were more numerous during the winter. Most taxa were di… Show more

“…The data obtained in the present study, concerning larval occurrence, confirmed the previous studies (e.g. Bonecker et al 1992Bonecker et al , 1993Katsuragawa et al 1993Katsuragawa et al , 2006Nonaka et al 2000;Bonecker and Castro 2006;Namiki et al 2007aNamiki et al , 2007bCampos et al 2010;Castro et al 2010;Goçalo et al 2011). Nevertheless, sampling in all previous studies in the region was restricted to the depth of 200 m. The possibility of collecting ichthyoplankton below the traditional depth limit was very important in showing that larvae of many species can be abundant in deeper regions as well, notably larval Cyclothone spp.…”

“…One of the pioneers, Matsuura (1971;1972), studied the life cycle of Sardinella brasiliensis (Clupeidae). Since then, other studies in Brazilian waters have considered the taxonomy of some families and the ecology, distribution, ontogeny and other aspects of the early life of fish (Bonecker et al 1992;Katsuragawa et al 1993Katsuragawa et al , 2006Nonaka et al 2000;Bonecker and Castro 2006;Namiki et al 2007aNamiki et al , 2007bCampos et al 2010;Castro et al 2010).…”

“…In ichthyoplankton surveys off eastern Brazil, Diaphus spp. larvae integrated the transitional and oceanic assemblages (Nonaka et al, 2000;Castro et al, 2010), and the numeric dominance of adults between 11-22ºS probably reflects the higher sampling effort in deeper waters when compared to 22-34ºS, where sampling was shallower (<500 m: Figueiredo et al, 2002).…”

“…Figueiredo et al (2002) and Santos (2003) reported 37 species captured in 133 midwater trawl hauls off southeastern and southern Brazil (22º-34ºS), with sampling effort concentrated from 100 to 500 m. From Rio Real, BA to Cabo São Tomé, RJ (12)(13)(14)(15)(16)(17)(18)(19)(20)(21)(22) o S), 27 larval lanternfish species were identified in 658 samples collected in depths ≤200 m (Castro et al, 2010), and Myctophidae was the most diverse family at epi-and mesopelagic depths (Braga et al, 2007).…”
