Apletodon wirtzi Fricke 2007 

UFESAbout UFES 139 (2 specimens) Ilhéu Santana, São Tomé. This species of the genus Apletodon  is common on rocks in shallow water at São Tomé and at Príncipe. The species is being described by Fricke (2007), based on animals from Príncipe. We have also frequently seen it at São Tomé Island ( Figure 17View FIGURES 17). The record of Apletodon pellegrini  from Annobón Island/ Equatorial Guinea, by Briggs (1990) may have been based on this species. The first author has recently (February 2007) collected this species near Limbe, Cameroon.
