Hemiramphus Bermudensis, a New Halfbeak from Bermuda, with a Survey of Endemism in Bermudian Shore Fishes
Abstract:A third species of Hemiramphus from the Atlantic, H. bermudensis, is described as a Bermudian endemic. It differs from H. balao LeSueur and H. brasiliensis (Linnaeus) primarily in having more gill-rakers. A survey of the approximately 70 forms of shore fishes originally known only from Bermuda indicates that 13 (about 4 per cent of the Bermudian shore fish fauna) are valid endemics.
