Clepticus africanus Heiser, Moura & Robertson, 2000 

UFBA 0 2798 (1 specimen) from Diogo Vaz. Afonso et al. (1999) noted the presence of an undescribed Clepticus  at São Tomé. The species was later described by Heiser et al. (2000) with specimens from São Tomé. It is a common shore fish not only at São Tomé but also at Príncipe. J. Laborel (pers. comm. to PW) stated that it is also common at Annobón Island.
