Abstract
Eviota pamae is described from 42 specimens, 9.6-17.7 mm SL, collected at Kei Besar, Kei Islands, Maluku Province, Indonesia. It is closely related to E. raja, an allopatric species known only from the Raja Ampat Islands, off the western tip of New Guinea (West Papua Province, Indonesia). The two species differ in colour pattern details, including the presence of a single dark mark on the lower caudal-fin base of E. pamae compared to marks on both the upper and lower base in E. raja. The new species also differs in having a yellow rather than white mid-dorsal snout stripe and has a much-reduced blue marking on the lower cheek. Meristically, the two species differ in counts for segmented rays in the second dorsal fin (usually 8-9 in E. pamae and usually 10 in E. raja).
