The genus Emblemaria is one of the best defined in the subfamily Chaenopsinae. It includes several species endemic to the southern Caribbean and adjacent waters, one of which, E. caycedoi, is new to science. This species is known from Isla de Providencia (Colombia) and from the Colombian continental Caribbean. It differs from the other Caribbean species of the genus in having a flag-like flap on the anterior edge of dorsal fin and only one row of palatine teeth. It seems to be closely related to E. hypacanthus, a more slender species endemic to the Gulf of California. E. biocellata is a deep water form known from only three individuals from the coast of the Colombian Guajira to Suriname. E. diphyodontis is known only from Isla de Cubagua (Venezuela).
