Taxonomy With the exception of a single specimen that Zubchenko (1981a: also mentioned in 1981b) claimed to have found in Coryphaenoides rupestris off Labrador (listed as a synonym of G. phycidis), there is only the original record of G. macroformis from the "ovary" of "cod" (Gadus morhua), "witch" (Glyptocephalus cynoglossus), and "plaice flounder" (Hippoglossoides platessoides) in Newfoundland waters. Considering the numbers of these common species that must have been examined, it is somewhat surprising that it has not been seen again. Nevertheless, I have retained this species as distinct in view of its unusual site and large size, but its validity requires confirmation. [details]
