Aspects of the anatomy of Dinolestes lewini (Griffith, 1834) are discussed in relation to the erroneous conclusion that this fish is a member of the Apogonidae. The monotypic family Dinolestidae is recognized and relationships are suggested with the Centropomidae and Sciaenidae. Relationships are not supported for. the Pomatomidae and Sphyraenidae.
