AbstractA new species of nettastomid eel, Saurenchelys halimyon, is described and figured. The leptocephalus of Saurenchelys cancrivora Peters, 1864, is redescribed; no resemblance was found to the leptocephalus of Facciolella physonema (Facciola, 1914) as was supposed by Blache (1977). Fourteen species are listed of larval and metamorphosed Anguilliformes caught in April 1980 in the mid North Atlantic.
