Gerald R. Allen, Mark V. Erdmann and Vincent V. Hiloman: A new species of damselfish (Pomacentrus: Pomacentridae) from Brunei and the Philippines, pp. 35-42

Abstract
Pomacentrus cheraphilus n. sp. is described from 19 specimens, 48.7-61.0 mm SL, collected at Brunei and northern Palawan, Philippines. It is distinguished from most similar species in the western Pacific by a combination of characters that include XIII dorsal spines, 13-14 soft dorsal rays, 13-15 soft anal rays, 17-18 pectoral rays, 17-19 tubed lateral-line scales, 19-21 total gill rakers on the first branchial arch, a yellow juvenile phase with blue stripes on the upper head and adjacent anterodorsal portion of the body, and light grey to dark greyish brown adult phase with a dark-edged greenish spot just below lateral line origin. The new species inhabits silty reefs around coral and rock outcrops at depths of 10-18 m.
