The suborder Argentinoidei contains four families of deepsea fishes found in all oceans. Many species are widespread but rarely collected and it is likely that there are more species present in Australian waters than represented by current collections. Although the classification given here follows that of Johnson & Patterson (1996) and Wiley & Johnson (2010), recent authors have elevated the group to ordinal status (Betancur et al. 2014).
