Caranx hippos (Linnaeus, 1766) 

Caranx hippos  also occurs at São Tomé. It is characterized by a yellow anal fin, shorter dorsal and anal fin lobes and fewer anal fin rays (16 or 17 versus 17–19, usually 18) than the undescribed Caranx  species. It was observed by PW in São Tomé City fish market. The records mentioned in Afonso et al. (1999) could belong to either Caranx  species.
