Abstract
    The revision of Oligocene otoliths of the myctophid genus Diaphus based on extensive otolith collections in the Aquitaine Basin, the French Alps, northern Italy and the Paratethys has proved the validity of only six nominal species: D. alcoholicus n.sp., D. longirostris (BRZOBOHATY, 1967), D. molossus NOLF & STEURBAUT, 1988, D. perspicillatoides n.sp., D. pristismetallis NOLF & BRZOBOHATY, 1994 and D. stafforaensis NOLF & STEURBAUT, 1988. None of these species has been recorded previously from Eocene or Miocene deposits.
