SUMMARY

The unique holotype of Browneichthys ornatus Woodward has been reexamined. Illustrations of the specimen are published for the first time, and, although it has not been possible to add considerably to the text of the original account, a short redescription is included. The systematic position of Browneichthys ornatus is discussed. It is concluded that this species should not be retained in the family Saurichthyidae and its transfer to the family Coccolepidae is proposed.
