We study the conformal metrics on with constant -curvature having finite volume, particularly in the case . We show that when such metrics exist in if and only if . Moreover we study their asymptotic behavior at infinity, in analogy with the case , which we treated in a recent paper. When , we show that such metrics have the form , where is a polynomial such that and . In dimension , such metrics correspond to the polynomials of degree with .
