SMNSAbout SMNS 24244 (2 specimens) from Bom Bom islet. UFESAbout UFES 150 (4 specimens) from Lagoa Azul. This undescribed species of the genus Serranus  is common on hard and soft bottoms at São Tomé and Príncipe ( Figure 8). A photograph by PW of this serranid is given in Debelius (1998: 148). This species is currently being described by P. Heemstra. Because the fin ray counts of this species are similar to those of the Mediterraneaneastern Atlantic species Serranus cabrilla  , and because it is very a common species difficult to overlook, we suspect that this is what Osório (1891, 1898) called Serranus cabrilla  .
