Abstract

A single specimen of giant leptocephalus Thalassenchelys foliaceus Castle & Raju 1975 was caught in subtropical waters of the western North Pacific Ocean. Mitochondrial coI gene sequence divergence between T. foliaceus and Congriscus maldivensis (Norman 1939) was 064 027% (mean s.e.), and the myomere and vertebral counts of these species were similar, indicating T. foliaceus is a junior synonym of C. maldivensis.
