Abstract

A new species of Scartella is described from Trindade Island (20°30’S, 29°20’W), a volcanic formation which lies about 1160 km off the Brazilian coast. The new species differs from its Atlantic congeners by the following combination of characters: body and head speckled with small black spots, number of segmented  dorsal  fin rays modally 14, number of segmented anal fin rays modally 16, and number of caudal vertebrae modally 23. This species is the fifth species of Scartella recognised from the Atlantic Ocean.
