Two new species of Parapercis (Perciformes: Pinguipedidae) from north-eastern Australia, and rediscovery of Parapercis colemani Randall & Francis, 1993
Two new species of Parapercis (Perciformes: Pinguipedidae) from north-eastern Australia are described and additional specimens collected on the NORFANZ survey in the Tasman Sea indicate that the species usually inhabits much deeper habitats and occurs over a wider geographic area. Expand
Plectorhinchus caeruleonothus, a new species of sweetlips (Perciformes: Haemulidae) from northern Australia and the resurrection of P. unicolor (Macleay, 1883), species previously confused with P.
Plectorhinchus unicolor from Japan to northern Australia is resurrected from the synonomy of P. schotaf and redescribed on the basis of the holotype and 24 non-type specimens, and can be distinguished by fresh colouration, modal dorsal and pectoral-fin ray counts and DNA barcoding. Expand
Naso mcdadei, a new species of unicornfish (Perciformes: Acanthuridae), with a review of the Naso tuberosus species complex
An immaculate square-nosed acanthurid fish of the genus Naso, previously misidentified as N. tuberosus, is described as a new species, N. mcdadei. The species is widespread, but appears uncommon,Expand
DNA barcoding the fishes of Lizard Island (Great Barrier Reef)
This study highlights one such event, for the marine waters around Lizard island in the Great Barrier Reef (Queensland, Australia), where a short expedition provided DNA barcodes for 13% of all marine fish species known to occur in Queensland. Expand
Review of the waspfish genus Liocranium (Scorpaeniformes: Tetrarogidae), with restoration of L. pleurostigma (Weber)
L. pleurostigma is distinguished from L. praepositum by colour pattern, gill-raker counts and several morphometrics, including upper-jaw length, depth of the posterior margin of the maxilla, length of the longest anal-fin soft ray, and position of the spine tip of the depressed pelvic fin. Expand
Description of a new species of Tomiyamichthys from Australia with a discussion of the generic name.
The validity of the name Tomiyamichthys over Flabelligobius is discussed, with both genera being described in the same paper, here accepting the appropriate name. Expand
Multi-gene barcoding to discriminate sibling species within a morphologically difficult fish genus (Sillago)
A multi-gene barcoding approach to discriminate two fisheries species flagged as sibling species within the morphologically difficult fish genus Sillago and recommend precautionary management of S. analis and S. ciliata fisheries until further research into hybridization is carried out. Expand
A New Genus and Species of the Shallow-Water Anglerfish Family Tetrabrachiidae (Teleostei: Lophiiformes: Antennarioidei) from Australia and Indonesia
Abstract A new genus and species of anglerfish, Dibrachichthys melanurus, of the antennarioid family Tetrabrachiidae, is described on the basis of 42 specimens collected in near-shore coastal watersExpand
Validity of the Poorly Known Scorpionfish, Rhinopias Eschmeyeri, with Redescriptions of R. Frondosa and R. aphanes (Scorpaeniformes: Scorpaenidae)
Rhinopias eschmeyeri differs from the latter two species in aspects of form, location, and number of tentacles on the head and body; form of dorsal-fin margins and caudal-fin ray tips; shape of penultimate dorsal- Fin; degree of development in lacrimal and suborbital ridge; and coloration. Expand
Redescription of Parapercis macrophthalma (Pietschmann, 1911) and description of a new species of Parapercis (Pisces: Pinguipedidae) from Taiwan.
Parapercis macrophthalina is confirmed as a valid species and redescribed on the basis of the holotype and other specimens collected from the type locality, Taiwan, and Japan. It is morphologicallyExpand
