Five Lined Constellation Fish

One of Beebe's Abyssal Fishes of the North Atlantic Ocean.

Scientific name: Bathysidus pentagrammus, given by William Beebe.

Physical description: Roundish body. Five lines of purple and yellow photophores on the sides. Large eyes. Small pectoral fins. Distribution: North Atlantic Ocean. Significant sighting: Observed only once at 1,900 feet by William Beebe in a bathysphere off Bermuda in the early 1930s.

Possible explanation: Carl Hubbs thought Beebe had seen a mass of jellyfish distorted by the mist of his breath on the bathysphere's porthole.
