Symphurus arawak, a New Cynoglossid Fish from the Caribbean Sea, with Notes on Symphurus rhytisma and Symphurus ommaspilus
A new dwarf species of tonguefish, Symphurus arawak, is described from peripheral areas of the Caribbean Sea. It and S. minor, S. parvus, and S. pelicanus form a species group in the genus. All are small species but the group is neither closely allied to S. rhytisma nor to S. ommaspilus, two species recently described from the Bahamas. The known range of S. rhytisma is extended to Curaçrao and an additional Bahaman record of S. ommaspilus is discussed.
