Abstract:The genus Paranotothenia comprises two species: P. magellanica (Forster) and P. dewitti sp. n. The new species differs in coloration and body proportions, structure of the scales and other characteristics, as well as in mode of life (pelagic form) and geographical distribution, replacing the subantarctic P. magellanica in the higher latitudes of the Antarctic. Questions of evolution and dispersal of the blue notothenias are discussed. (Auth.)
