Undulatory locomotion in elongate aquatic vertebrates: anguilliform
swimming since Sir James Gray.
The phylogenetic affinities of the mysterious anguilliform
genera Coloconger and Thalassenchelys as supported by mtDNA sequences.
1) the albuliform, notacanthiform, anguilliform
and saccopharyngiform fishes examined are grouped together.
Sharks exhibit numerous body morphologies ranging from the fusiform shape of the mako shark Isurus oxyrhynchus to the almost anguilliform
shape of the benthic species.
Ecology of anguilliform
leptocephali: remarkable transparent fish larvae of the ocean surface layer.
These efficiency values are typical for other anguilliform
swimmers that make terrestrial excursions.
In contrast, bluefish use the anguilliform
swimming mode, in which thrust is generated by muscular contractions along the body and tail (Webb, 1978).
abaster caudal rays are joined to hypurals like in anguilliform
fishes and in that species with a narrow tail fin (Schultze & Arratia).
