Phanops volucris Rofen 1966

Phanops volucris Rofen 1966, Mem. Sears Found. Mar. Res. Pt. 5:595.  Type locality: Eastern North Pacific Ocean, 2528.9'-35.3'N, 11406.6'- 11321.3'W, 1500-5500 mwo.  Neotype: SIO 64-28 (60.6 mm SL).  Remarks: Listed in Rofen 1966:595 as "Phanops volucris Rofen 1963", but no name is proposed in the 1963 paper and no description was given; name first appeared in1966 as above with brief characterization in key. Neotype designated as SIO 64-28 by Johnson 1974:107, but see Johnson's discussion of available Rofen specimens [which could be considered as original syntypes]. Valid as Rosenblattichthysvolucris (Rofen) (Johnson 1974:107).
