Caption: Clingfishes and pipefish, 19th-century illustrations. At top are two clingfishes (Gobiesox marmoratus and Gobiesox poecilophthalmos). The former is found in the Atlantic and Pacific. The latter is a synonym for the Galapagos clingfish (Arcos poecilophthalmos). At bottom is the deep-bodied pipefish (Leptonotus blainvilleanus), found in South American coastal waters and here named as Syngnathus acicularis. This page of illustrations is Plate 27 from the 1842 volume on fish ('Part IV: Fish') that forms part of the multi-volume work 'The Zoology of the Voyage of HMS Beagle'. This work described the animals collected and observed by the British naturalist Charles Darwin during the survey voyage of HMS Beagle during the years 1832 to 1836. This expedition established Darwin's reputation as a naturalist. 'The Zoology of the Voyage of HMS Beagle' was edited by Darwin and published between 1838 and 1843. The volume on fish was written by British naturalist Leonard Jenyns (later Leonard Blomefield). The artworks were by Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins.
