Clepticus africanus  ZBK  Heiser, Moura & Robertson, 2000

UFBA 02798 (1 specimen) from Diogo Vaz. Afonso et al. (1999) noted the presence of an undescribed Clepticus  ZBK  at São Tomé. The species was later described by Heiser et al. (2000) with specimens from São Tomé. It is a common shore fish not only at São Tomé but also at Príncipe. J. Laborel (pers. comm. to PW) stated that it is also common at Annobón Island.
