Early stages of Atlantic fishes: An identification guide for the western central North Atlantic.
The fishes of the family Atherinidae, commonly known as Old World or True silversides, were recently separated from the atherinopsids by Saeed et al. (1994). Dyer & Chernoff (1986b) confirmed this decision based on twenty diagnostic characters. In the western central Atlantic (WCA) area, there are only 3 species of this family (Alepidomus evermanni, Hypoatherina harringtonensis and Atherinomorus stipes) all pertaining to the subfamily Atherinomorinae (Chernoff, 2001).
