Abstract:The following fishes represent new records for the Hawaiian
Islands: the moray eel Lycodontis javanicus (Bleeker), the frogfish Antennarius
nummifer (Cuvier), the jack Carangoides ferdau (Forsskal), the grouper
Cromileptes altivelis (Cuvier) (probably an aquarium release), the chubs
Kyphosus cinerascens (Forsskal) and K. vaigiensis (Quoy and Gaimard), the
armorhead Pentaceros richardsoni Smith, the goatfish Upeneus vittatus
(Forsskal) (a probable unintentional introduction by the Division of Fish and
Game, State of Hawaii), the wrasse Halichoeres marginatus Ruppell, the
gobies Nemateleotris magnifica Fowler and Discordipinna griessingeri Hoese
and Fourmanoir, the angelfish Centropyge multicolor Randall and Wass, the
surgeonfish Acanthurus lineatus (Linnaeus), the oceanic cutlassfish Assurger
anzac (Alexander), and the driftfish Hyperoglyphe japonica (Doderlein). In
addition, the snapper Pristipomoides auricilla (Jordan, Evermann, and
Tanaka) and the wrasse Thalassoma quinquevittatum (Lay and Bennett), both
overlooked in recent compilations, are shown to be valid species for the
Hawaiian region. Following Parin (1967), the needlefish Tylosurus appendiculatus
(Klunzinger), which has a ventral bladelike bony projection from the end
of the lower jaw, is regarded as a morphological variant of T. acus (Lacepede).
