Liopropoma  n. sp.

An undescribed species of the genus Liopropoma  was encountered when diving at steep cliff walls at Pedra da Galé, Príncipe ( Figure 9) and at Diogo Vaz, São Tomé. The solitary animals were encountered between 32 and 45 m depth. Attempts to catch a specimen failed. This is the first record of the genus Liopropoma  in the eastern Atlantic. This genus was known only from the Indo-Pacific and from the western Atlantic.
