Abstract
The occurrence of the gold spot herring, Herklotsichthys quadrimaculatus, is reported for Hawaii from the islands of Oahu, Molokai, and Lanai. This species was first collected in Kaneohe Bay, Oahu, in 1975, and appears to have largely replaced the Marquesan sardine, Sardin ella marquesensis, introduced to Hawaii in the 1950s. Notes on the separation of the gold spot herring from other Hawaiian clupeids are provided in addition to a comparison of the Hawaiian specimens with specimens of gold spot herring from Red Sea and tropical Pacific localities.
