A distinctively-patterned, small (the largest specimen 306 mm TL; a 220-mm female with eggs) western Atlantic moray with serrated teeth is described and illustrated based on nine specimens. Its known distribution is restricted to the east coast of Florida from Daytona Beach to Key Largo,
plus a specimen from Havana, Cuba, and another from the western edge of the Great Bahama Bank. The known depth range of the species is 32 to 50 fathoms, except for the Bahama specimen from “outside 100 fathoms.”
