Taxon Notes:Updated after description. New Caledonian material, which forms the type series, was collected at several trawl stations from 'seamount B', (~24°55’S, 168°21’E) along the northern sector of the Norfolk Ridge at depths of 494–920 m (Roberts & Paulin 1997); most commonly at 535–700 m. No additional material has been forthcoming from Norfolk Ridge. Other material collected from off Danger Point, s Qld (28°00’S, 153°58’E), south to Gabo Island, Vic. (37°45’S, 150°13’E) at depths of 410–485 m; additional Euclichthys (presumably E. robertsi but not confirmed) were collected off Sydney, NSW (AMS I.15970-003) at 503–512 m, and off Jervis Bay, NSW (AMS I.23874-002) at 732–768m. Two small juveniles (CSIRO H 6031-03, 108 mm SL; CSIRO H 6048-01, 131 mm SL) were collected off Lord Howe Island, Tasman Sea (31°46’S, 159°21’E; 34°11’S, 162°39’E) in 445–960m.
