Gerald R. Allen and Mark V. Erdmann: Paracheilinus walton, a new species of flasherwrasse (Perciformes: Labridae) from Papua, Indonesia with a key to the species of Paracheilinus, pp.11-18

Abstract

The Indo-Pacific labrid fish Paracheilinus walton is described from four male specimens, 34.8-40.7 mm SL, and two females, 27.7-38.9 mm SL, collected in 46 m at Yapen Island, Papua, Indonesia. It most closely resembles the sympatric P. cyaneus (South China Sea to Solomon Islands), but differs most noticeably with regards  to its smaller maximum size (about 45 vs. 55 mm SL ) and lower number of elongate dorsal rays (3-4 versus 6-8) in males. There are also significant differences in the “flasher” courtship pattern of males of the two species. Paracheilinus walton has a white to slightly yellowish dorsal fin that contrasts vividly with the intense red colour (black when viewed under ambient light) of the adjacent back compared to the brilliant turquoise blue to whitish dorsal fin and back of P. cyaneus. Moreover, there is a pronounced difference in the shape and orientation of the elongate filaments. In P. walton these are relatively broad and uniform in width throughout their length, terminating in rounded, club-shaped tips. When fully erect, the distal third of the protruding rays are curved posteriorly. In contrast, the slender, tapered rays of P. cyaneus are not rigidly curved posteriorly. A key is given to the 15 species of Paracheilinus.

Scope

aqua is an international journal which publishes original scientific articles in the fields of systematics, taxonomy, bio-geography, ethology, ecology, and general biology of fishes since 1994. Papers on freshwater, brackish, and marine fishes will be considered. aqua is fully refereed and aims at publishing manuscripts within 2-4 months of acceptance. In view of the importance of colour patterns in species identification and animal ethology, authors are encouraged to submit colour illustrations in addition to descriptions of coloration. It is our aim to provide the international scientific community with an efficiently published journal meeting high scientific and technical standards.

Call for Papers

The editors welcome the submission of original manuscripts which should be sent in digital format to the scientific editor. 
Full length research papers and short notes will be considered for publication. There are no page charges and colour illustrations will be published free of charge. Authors will receive one free copy of the issue in which their paper is published and an e-print in PDF format.
