Abstract
    When checking the identification of the Carapidae in the MNHN collection (Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris) a specimen of Eurypleuron owasianum (Matsubara, 1953) (MNHN 1992-0914) caught off Madagascar (20°S, 42°30’E) was found to be incorrectly identified. The specimen is vey close to Carapus dubius (Putnam, 1874), which is known from the Eastern Pacific (Markle and Olney, 1990).
