Abstract
Cryothenia peninsulae, gen. et sp. nov., is described from 20 specimens taken off the Antarctic Peninsula. Diagnostic characteristics include: two lateral lines, pit-like pores associated with the cephalic lateral lines, no tubular lateral line scales, <26 short, non-dentigerous gill rakers and a probable pelagic mode of existence. C. peninsulae is probably a late autumn-early winter spawner and a specialized feeder.
