Muraena albimarginata Temminck & Schlegel, 1846: 267  , pl. 118 (Type locality: Japan [Nagasaki]). Gymnothorax albimarginatus ( Temminck & Schlegel, 1846)  : Loh et al., in press:table 1; Loh et al., 2015: 30.? Gymnothorax hepaticus  (not of Rüppell, 1830): Chen & Yu, 1986: 249; Shen et al., 1993: 104; Chen et al., 1994: 50; Chen,

2004: 28; Loh et al., in press:table 1.

Remarks. A relatively deep-living and rare species represented by only a few specimens in collections. Also recorded by video taken on deep SCUBA dives at Green Island, southwestern Taiwan. Gymnothorax hepaticus  does not occur outside the Indian Ocean, and previous records of that species from Taiwan may refer to G. albimarginatus  .
