Abstract: Torquigener brevipinnis (Regan) is redescribed. The species differs
from the very similar T. flavima culosus Hardy and Randall primarily in color,
having clearly defined whitish bands on the side of the head, a solid lateral stripe
along the body, and fewer vertical bands on the caudal fin. Torquig ener gloerfelti
n. sp. is described from four specimens from Indonesian waters. It differs from T.
altipinnis (Ogilby) in color pattern and in the higher number of spine s that overlap
the anterior margin of the gill opening, and from T. vicinus Whitley in having
a larger eye diameter and shorter caudal peduncle length.
