A bibliography of the fishes of the Leiognathidae family (slipmouth, pony-fishes, silver-bellies, etc.) is presented. A total of 941 references, most of which are annotated, are listed, covering all aspects of their biology, including fishery related aspects, physiology and anatomy (e.g., their bioluminescence) as well as their use as human food. Comprehensive subject and geographic indices are provided.
