Otoliths, predominantly from Lanternfishes (Myctophidae), from two species belonging to the Deepsea Bristlemouths (Gonostomidae), and from one stromatoid species are described from the Quaternary of Sites 587 and 594 in the southwest Pacific. Their occurrences and preservation as well as their present distribution are discussed. Growth layers of some otoliths are described in detail and figured using SEM techniques.
