are described and discussed. Most are plain brown and have unpatterned body
coloration (one with small dark spots); they are small to moderate-sized species
and possess fewer than 150 vertebrae. They include Gymnothorax atolli
(pietschmann, 1935); Gymnothorax australicola Lavenberg, 1992; Gymnothorax
herrei Beebe & Tee-Van, 1933; Gymnothorax panamensis (Steindachner, 1876);
Gymnothorax pindae Smith, 1962; Gymnothorax pseudoherrei Bohlke, n. sp.;
Gymnothorax kontodontos Bohlke, n. sp.; and Gymnothorax microstictus
