Gerald R. Allen and Rudie H. Kuiter: Descriptions of two New Wrasses of the Genus Cirrhilabrus (Labridae) from Indonesia, pp. 133-140

Abstract

wo new species of labrid fishes are described from Indonesian seas. Cirrhilabrus aurantidorsalis, new species, is described from a single male specimen, 84.1 mm SL, collected off Togean Islands in Tomini Bay, Indonesia. It is closely allied to C. solorensis, but differs on the basis of male colour pattern, particularly the bright orange area on the upper back and dark violet “crown” on the forehead. Cirrhilabru tonozukai, new species, is described from three specimens, 55.8-58.1 mm SL, collected at the Baggai Islands off central eastern Sulawesi, Indonesia. It is closely related to C. filamentosus, but males have a shorter dorsal fin filament and differ in colour pattern, as well as attaining a smaller size. These two species differ from other members of the genus (hence their placement in the subgenus Cirrhilabrichthys Klausewitz) by a combination of characters that include a prolonged, filamentous extension of the posterior dorsal spines in males, a rounded caudal fin, and a single row of cheek scales.
