Centropyge aurantonotus Burgess, 1974


Centropyge aurantonotus Burgess, 1974 

This angelfish, previously only known from the western Atlantic (from Barbados to south-eastern Brazil), was collected at Sete Pedras, on rocky bottom in about 22 m depth ( SMNSAbout SMNS 25234, 1 specimen). The dive guide knew the species and claimed to have seen it several times already; thus the specimen collected probably was not a lone stray animal.
