Abstract

Apogon limenus is described as a new species from New South Wales. This abundant species has been confused with Apogon fasciatus. The species is compared with other striped Apogon species which are similar in coloration. It differs from them in details of coloration and the combination of fin ray, scale and gill-raker counts, serrate free margin of the preoperculum and smooth to slightly serrate anterior preopercular ridge. It is suggested that species collected by HMS Herald from "Victoria", were collected from the Victoria District of Western Australia. The district name was used in the 1800's for the area north of Perth and south of Carnarvon.
