Not illustrated. 1902 Excerpt: ...Fishes, vol. I., p. 208, PI. LXI., Fig. 1.) (Fish. Mus., Zool. Dep., Univ. Coll., Liverpool.) Local Name, "Butterfish." This common little fish extends from Iceland and Greenland to the shores of France. It is abundant all round our coasts in shore pools, and under stones between tide marks. It is also sometimes caught in our shrimp nets. We have it commonly at Port Erin and elsewhere in Isle of Man, Menai Straits, north coast of Anglesey, North Wales, and Piel in the Barrow Channel. Enchelyopus V1v1parus (Linn.)--Viviparous Blenny. (See Zoarces viviparus, Day's British Fishes, vol. I., p. 211, PI. LXI., Fig. 2.) This fish ranges from Scandinavia to the south of Europe.
