Mycteroperca  sp.

An unidentified serranid of the genus Mycteroperca  , closely resembling Mycteroperca fusca (Lowe, 1836)  , was briefly seen near Rolas Island in 20 m depth and two locally caught individuals of this species were seen in a restaurant. Unfortunately no photographs, measurements, or samples for genetic analysis were taken and thus we cannot state if the species is Mycteroperca fusca  , the closely related and similar species M. rubra (Bloch, 1793)  , or an undescribed species.
