Lipogramma Flavescens, a New Grammid Fish from the Bahama Islands, with Descriptive and Distributional Notes on L. Evides and L. Anabantoides
Abstract:Since 1981, deep reef ichthyofaunal observations and collections have been made by the Johnson-Sea-Link submersibles in the Bahama Islands at depths between 300 and 600 m. A new grammid fish species, Lipogramma flavescens, is described from a single specimen collected at a depth of 285 m at San Salvador. In addition, large adult specimens of L. evides are described from specimens collected between 108 and 306 m at San Salvador. The first continental record of L. anabantoides is documented for the continental shelf north of the Dry Tortugas.
