Abstract

Apogon albimaculosus, a new species of cardinalfish, is described from eight specimens caught between Townsville in north Queensland and Yule Island in Papua New Guinea. The species is easily distinguished from other members of the family by its colouration. A. albimaculosus is provisionally placed in the subgenus Nectamia, but its precise relationships are obscure.
