Name edit

Oxyurichthys (Oxyurichthys) zeta Pezold & Larson, 2015

  • Holotype: NSMT-P 120172.
  • Paratype: WAM P.32537-003.

Type locality: Shikoku, Ehime Prefecture, Morode, Japan, muddy bottom, 7 m depth.

Etymology: From the Greek ζήτα (zeta) which gave rise to the last letter of the Roman alphabet upon which the English language is based. This elusive species is known from only two specimens and several photographs. It is the last species in the revision by Pezold & Larson, although it is unlikely to be the last species described for this genus.
