Abstract

This publication is the second in a series that will together constitute an Atlas of Teleostei Otoliths for the Southeastern-Southern Brazilian area. Here we present results of morphologic and morphometric analyses of 12 Clupeiform species (3 Clupeidae, 7 Engraulidae and 2 Pristigasteridae) by means of the most commonly used features, measurements and indices. Three otoliths of each species have been illustrated and photographed whenever possible. The frequency of occurrence has been calculated for each characteristic by total length class (TL), and the ontogenetic differences have been analyzed (multiple χ² test; significance 0.05).
