Abstract

Pseudanthias charleneae is described from a single specimen, 75.3 mm SL, collected at Cenderawasih Bay, western New Guinea (Papua Province, Indonesia) at a depth of 56 m. It is also reported from Bali, Indonesia on the basis of colour photographs. Diagnostic features include: X,16 dorsal rays; II,7 anal rays; 17-18 pectoral rays; 47 lateral-line scales; 28 circumpedunclar scales; 11 + 26 gill rakers on the first branchial arch; an elevated third dorsal spine; and male colour in life (mainly lavender pink, grading to orange on head and anterodorsal part of body with a broad, tapering orange bar below middle of spinous dorsal fin and a lavender-pink margined yellow band from the snout tip to the pectoral-fin base). It is most similar to P. carlsoni from Melanesia (Papua New Guinea to Fiji) and P. engelhardi from the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, but differs in having a complete rather than incomplete bar below the middle of the spinous dorsal fin and in lacking a large red spot on the spinous dorsal fin. It also differs in having a higher lateral-line scale count (47 versus 41-45), more circumpeduncular scales (28 versus 25), and a deeper caudal peduncle (least depth 1.8 in HL versus 2.15-2.3).
