Abstract

A new species of synaphobranchid eel, Meadia roseni, was caught off the southern coast of Taiwan (22°21 ′05′N, 120° 12′46′E) in depth of 1,020 m. It is characterized by a long lateral line (87.5% of standard length), well-developed rostral papillae and ridges, numerous vertebrae (200), forward location of anus (3/5 head length posterior to gill slits), long gill slits (13.3% of head length), and short snout (25.7% of head length). It differs greatly from M. abyssa/is, the only species previously assigned to this genus.
