Additions to, and range extensions of, the South African marine ichthyofauna

  • Richard Winterbottom

Abstract

Range extensions for 24 species of western Indian Ocean fishes are recorded, including 11 new additions to the fish fauna of the Republic of South Africa. It was found that Lycodontis laysanus (Steindachner), as referred to by Smith (1962a), is the common Pacific Gymnothorax eurostus (Abbott). On the basis of specimens examined, Gobius keiensis Smith, 1938, is a junior synonym of Gobius aculipermis Valenciennes.
