Abstract
    Larvae of Aprognathodon platyventris, Callechelys bilinearis, C. perryae, C. muraena, C. sp. cf. springeri, Callechelys sp., Letharchus vellifer, a callechelyin (genus and species unknown), and a bascanichthyin (genus and species unknown) are described and figured. Larval identification is based on position of the dorsal fin, gill-arch osteology, caudal osteology, number of nephric myomers, and total number of myomeres. Members of Callechelyini have the fourth hypobranchial present as larve and adults. Two groups are recognized in Callechelys. Distinguishing characteristics of the 2 groups are discussed.
