Title: A Review of the Damselfish Genus Chromis from the Hawaiian Islands, with Descriptions of Three New Species
Authors: Randall, John E.

Citation: Randall JE, Swerdloff SN. 1973. A review of the damselfish genus Chromis from the Hawaiian Islands, with descriptions of three new species. Pac Sci 27(4): 327-349.
Abstract: The pomacentrid genus Chromis is represented by eight species in
the Hawaiian Islands: vanderbilti, leucurus, agilis, ovalis, verater, and the new species
acares, hanui, and struhsakeri. Agilis and hanui were formerly confused as color
phases of leucurus. Ovalis, verater, hanui, and struhsakeri are known only from the
Hawaiian region, the latter from depths of 103 to 184 meters. The range of vanderbilti
is extended to other central and western Pacific localities; acares is described
from Johnston Island and other islands of Oceania; leucurus is recorded from the
Marquesas Islands, and verater from Johnston Island.
The genera pycnochromis, Thrissochromis, Serrichromis, Lepicephalochromis, and
Siphonochromis described by Fowler (1941-1946) are referred to the synonymy of
Chromis.
Daseyllus caudofasciatus Montalban is a junior synonym of Chromis lepidolepis
Bleeker. Siphonochromis lepidostethicus Fowler and Lepicephalochromis westalli Whitley
are junior synonyms of Chromis isharae (Schmidt).
