John E. Randall and Fenton Walsh: A pictorial review of the Indo-Pacific labrid fish genus Pseudocoris, with description of a new species from the Coral Sea, pp. 45-58

Abstract

Pseudocoris aequalis is described as a new species of labrid fish collected from 8-15?m depth at Holmes Reef in the Coral Sea. The description is based on six specimens, four as terminal males, 100-112?mm SL, and two as males in the initial phase, 82 and 89?mm SL. The new species is distinct in lacking an elevated anterior part of the dorsal in the terminal-male phase, and the color pattern of both adult phases. Color photographs are provided of the juveniles, initial-phase, and terminal males of the five other species of the genus, with notes on their distribution. Pseudocoris aurantiofasciata is recorded for the first time for Australia, based on a terminal male collected at Holmes Reef.
