  "abstract": "<p>The Longhorn Armored Gurnard Peristedion longicornutum n. sp. is described from Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and Vanuatu, based on 28 specimens collected with a beam trawl at depths of 340\u2013506 meters. The new species is characterized among the Indo-Pacific species of the genus by 21\u201323 dorsal-fin soft rays; 20\u201322 anal-fin soft rays; 29\u201333 bony plates in the dorsal row; 35\u201338 in the upper lateral row; 26\u201329 in the lower lateral row; 23\u201326 in the ventral row; 3 lip and 6\u20137 chin groups of barbels; 14\u201326 branches on the filamentous barbel; 15\u201324 total chin barbels; the anterior edge of the 4th sensory pore of the rostral projection half a pupil diameter anterior to the anterior edge of the premaxilla; a very long and needle-like rostral projections, length 14.2\u201322.3% SL; a wide interspace between rostral projections, 0.20\u20130.30 in rostral-projection width, and a rounded margin on the medial side at the base; a smooth and straight perifacial rim; the upper detached pectoral-fin ray longer than the joined pectoral fin; and the peritoneum pale. A key to the Indo-West Pacific species of the genus Peristedion Lacep\u00e8de, 1801 is presented.</p>",
