TO No. 5 of the Leland Stanford Junior University Publications Mr. E. A. Starks contributes three articles on the osteology of certain scomberoid fishes, the first dealing with the genus Leiognathus, the second with the families Gempylidæ, Lepidopidæ, and Trichiuridæ,. and the third with the horse-mackerels (Carangidæ). In regard to Leiognathus, it may be mentioned that the genus was transferred by Mr. Boulenger from the scomberoid group to a position in the neighbourhood of the percoids in the family Gerridæ; but this view is disputed by the author, who regards the genus as the type of a scomberoid family.
