The genus Chrionema Gilbert, 1905 is reviewed. Four species are recognized: C. squamentum and C. squamiceps, previously placed in Chriomystax Ginsburg, 1955, and C. chryseres and C. chlorotaenia. Chrionema is readily separable from other percophidid genera by the absence of maxillary tentacles and the number of fin elements. The four species are distinguishable on the basis of squamation, meristic characters, and pigmentation pattern. The disjunct distributions of the species are discussed and compared with similar patterns in other families.
