Abstract: The eel Gymnothorax pikei Bliss, type locality Mauritius, is recorded
from Papua New Guinea. This, the second known specimen, agrees closely with the
type in color pattern, dentition, and body proportions. It is described and compared
with the species Gymnothorax berndti Snyder, G. rueppelliae (McClelland),
and G. rupelli auct. G. berndti is recorded here from Reunion and Mauritius.
