status

 

Antennarius pardalis  (Valenciennes in Cuvier & Valenciennes, 1837)

SMNS 24241 from near Bom Bom islet, Príncipe, in 15 m depth. Afonso et al. (1999) noted that the presence of this species at São Tomé needs confirmation because of the bad preservation of a specimen previously reported by Osório (1891, 1898). Our specimen is in perfect condition and clearly belongs to this species.
