A new species of pomacanthid fish, genus Centropyge, is described from the Coral Sea. Centropyge woodheadi sp. n. lives in clear offshore conditions and is known from the Coral Sea to the Solomon Island and Fiji region. It is sympatric with the closely related C. heraldi Woods & Schultz, 1953, that is widespread in the West Pacific. The two species differ with regards to colour pattern, length of head and length of median fins.
