GONZALEZ-ACOSTA, Adrián F. et al. Occurrence of Hydrolagus macrophthalmus (Chondrichthyes: Holocephali: Chimaeridae) in the northeastern Pacific. Rev. Mex. Biodiv. [online]. 2010, vol.81, n.1, pp. 197-201. ISSN 1870-3453.
The southeastern Pacific chimaeroid Hydrolagus macrophthalmus De Buen, 1959, is reported for the first time in the northeastern Pacific on the basis of 1 male specimen (945 mm TL) caught on 13 April 1995 off Manzanillo, Colima (Mexico: 18° 30'N, 104° 15'W) at the surface above deep water (2 000 m). The first occurrence of this species increases the number of chimaeroid species known in the northeastern Pacific and expands their known range.
