Three species of morid fishes were collected during the Expedition Antarktis XIII/4 of RV "Polarstern" at the southernmost tip of South America, on the slope east of Isla Nueva, Southern Chile (ca. 55ºS), Antimora rostrata (Günther, 1878), Guttigadus kongi (Markle and Meléndez, 1988) and Lepidion ensiferus (Günther, 1887). Representing new records for the above area, all of them were previoulsy recorded from the Chilean and Argentinean Patagonian region.
