Gerald R. Allen: Description of a New Wrasse (Pisces: Labridae: Cirrhilabrus) from Northern Sumatra, Indonesia, pp. 45-50

Abstract

Cirrhhilabrus joanallenae, new species is described from 3 specimens, 41.2-46.2 mm SL, collected at Weh Island, northern Sumatra. It is closely allied to C. rubriventralis from the W. Indian Ocean Red Sea, both species exhibiting an elevated “pennant” at the beginning of the dorsal fin, large club-shaped pelvic fins, and a single row of scales on the cheek. However, the new species differs in life colours of male and females, in having fewer scales on the cheek, less conspicuous serrations on the preopercular margin, and 15-16 rather than 14 pectoral rays.
