Dragičević B., Pallaoro A., Grgičević R., Lipej L., Dulčić J. 2011. On the occurrence of early life stage of the king of herrings, Regalecus glesne (Actinopterygii: Lampriformes: Regalecidae), in the Adriatic Sea. Acta Ichthyol. Piscat. 41 (3): 251–253.
The occurrence of an early life stage of the king of herrings, Regalecus glesne Ascanius, 1772, is reported for the first time from the Adriatic waters. A single larva (SL = 103.4 mm) was found alive in the waters of open Adriatic near a remote Island Palagruža. Findings of early life stages of this species are very rare in the Mediterranean and have previously been reported only from the waters of the Strait of Sicily and Elba Island.
