|Abstract:||A total of 32 individuals of a chaetodontid fish resembling
Prognathodes guezei (Mauge & Bauchot) were recorded on photographs and
videotape taken from the Hawaii Undersea Research Laboratory's deep-sea
submersibles Makali'i and Pisces-V between 1982 and 1990. These sightings
represent the first record of the genus Prognathodes from the Hawaiian Islands.
The fish were observed at depths of 106-187 m off Hawai'i, at Penguin Bank,
and at French Frigate Shoals (Northwestern Hawaiian Islands). Most sightings
were made on the western side of Hawai'i, particularly near Kealakekua Bay.
