Haushia marinae n. gen., n. sp. (Osteichthyes, Zoarcidae), caught in Estados Island (Argentina)
During a sampling cruise carried out on March 1985 by the research vessel «AUSTRAL» in the surroundings of the Estados Island (Southwestern Atlantic), some ichthyological material was caught, including a small Zoarcidae specimen. The usual ichthyologic treatment showed that features did not match any specific or generic characters known in the family and, consequently a new genus and species Haushia marinae, is described here. The characters of the new genus are: Zoarcidae with pelvic fins; naked (scaleless) skin; mouth terminal, surrounded by dermal tentacles; without palatal membrane; gil1 opening above pectoral fin base; pseudobranchiae absent.

Key words
