Abstract

A new deep-water serranid, Plectranthias klausewitzi, is described from seven specimens, dredged in deep waters of the southern Red Sea. The new species differs from its congeners by the following combination of characters: soft dorsal-fin rays 14-15; pectoral-fin rays 14-15, branched except the uppermost; lateral line complete, tubed scales 29; oblique rows of scales on cheek 7-8; no scales on maxilla and ventral aspects of head; posterior preopercular margin serrate, ventral margin without conspicuous spines; third dorsal spine longest; 9-10 oblique dark bars on dorsal half of body, fused mediolaterally, two dark spots on caudal fin. This is the first record of a deep-dwelling species of the genus Plectranthias from the Red Sea.
