Abstract

A new species of Pseudochromis (Pseudochromidae) is described on the basis of a single specimen trawled from 80 m at Glomar Shoal, off northern Western Australia. Pseudochromis reticulatus n.sp. is separable from other Pseudochromis in having the following characters in combination: dorsal rays III,27 (all soft rays branched), anal rays III,15, scales in lateral series 34 to 36, anterior lateral line scales 28 to 30, circumpeduncular scales 16, and caudal fin pointed.
