|Abstract:||Pempheris rapa Mooi, n. sp., is distinguished from congeners by
the following combination of characters: scales strongly ctenoid and adherent;
no gular scales; pelvic axillary scale absent; dorsal fin with six spines; in specimens
35 mm SL or larger, gill-raker counts on first arch 11-13+26-29 =
37-42 (usually 38-40); lateral-line scales 72-84 (rarely fewer than 76); no
anterior light organ; anal fin with 33-37 segmented rays. A second species of
Pempheris of uncertain identification, but a member of the cycloid-scaled and
keeled species complex that includes P. oualensis, was found among the collections
of the new species.
