  8. The subfamily of the deep-sea hatchetfish (Sternoptychinae) comprises three recent genera with a total of about 40 species and occurs worldwide in almost all tropical and temperate seas: Argyropelecus with about 7 species, Polyipnus with about 32 species and Sternoptyx with currently 4 species.
