  1. Standard lengths (SL) are shown in mm, depth in meters (m). References for species' depth ranges are listed (min depth; max depth). Some museum specimens from the UWFC extend the published depth ranges for these species; these are noted as sources. All are museum specimens except Careproctus longifilis, whose collection is described by [107]. Collection depth for Careproctus acanthodes represents the collection lot and is considered an estimate. UW 154989 (Lipariscus nanus) and UW 155729 (Nectoliparis pelagicus) are pelagic species that were collected with non-closing benthic trawls
