Abstract

Amongst the fishes from the 'Challenger' Expedition received by the National Museum of Ireland in 1899 are type specimens of sixteen species. Their type status had been previously unsuspected. A list of these type specimens is given, with notes on the collection of the same species in the British Museum (Natural History), their lengths, locality and synonyms are detailed. The list of type specimens is preceded by a discussion of the history of this fish collection, and the intentions of the principals of the 'Challenger' expedition with regard to the disposal of type specimens. Correspondence is quoted between Dr. Albert Günther of the British Museum (Natural History), and Professor Sir Charles Wyville Thomson and Dr. John Murray of the 'Challenger' from published and unpublished sources.
