Abstract

Centropyge woodheadi Kuiter, 1998 is regarded as e junior synonym of C. heraldi Woods and Schultz, 1593. the 4 measurements reported to differentiate woodheadi from heraldi could not be duplicated by taking the same measurements of 7 specimens of the woodheadi  form and 18 typical C. heraldi of about the same range in standard length. The woodheadi form has been observed to lose the diagnostic broad black band in the soft portion of the dorsal fin in an aquarium. In addition to records of the woodheadi form from Samoa, Fiji, Tonga, Coral Sea, and Solomon Islands, one specimen is reported from Huahine, Society Islands, and one from Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands.
