Abstract
Chaetodon quadrimaculatus is cited in the literature from the islands of Polynesia and Micronesia to southern Japan and Taiwan, but not the islands of Melanesia or the East Indies. It is reported here as a first record for Melanesia from a single specimen collected in New Georgia, Solomon Islands, and a first record for the East Indies by two specimens from Samar in the Philippines obtained in the aquarium fish trade. A genetic comparison of Philippine and Hawaiian material revealed no differences indicating conspecific populations. We also report the species from Minami Tori Shima (formerly Marcus Island) in the North Pacific.
