Diagnosis

Diagnosis. A species of Apogon (Ostorhinchus) with two brownish stripes on head and body in life, mid­lateral stripe extending to tip of caudal fin, dorsal stripe from snout over eye ending about middle of second dorsal fin but not past second dorsal­fin base, a variably present third shorter, faint stripe extending from dorsal part of eye to about origin of second dorsal fin; roof of mouth and upper gill arches pale; 15, usually 16 pectoral­fin rays; well developed gill rakers 15 16, total gill rakers and rudiments 18 21 (rarely 17, 22 24); VII first­dorsal spines.

Description

Description. See Figure 4 for general body shape and Table 1 for proportional percentages. Dorsal fin VII­I, 9 with third spine much thicker than second or fourth, last soft ray shorter than preceding ray; anal fin II, 8 with last soft ray shorter than preceding ray; pectoral fin 16 16, or 15 ­ 15 less frequently (Table 2); pelvic fin I, 5; principal caudal rays 9 + 8, caudal fin forked; pored lateral­line scales, 24 25, extend from posttemporal onto base of caudal fin; transverse scale rows above lateral line 2; transverse scale rows below lateral line 6 7; median predorsal scales 5; circumpeduncular scale rows 12 (5 + 2 + 5). Villiform teeth in several rows on the premaxilla; several villiform rows on dentary; 1 2 rows on the palatine; 1 2 rows on vomer; none on ectopterygoid, entopterygoid or basihyal. Rudiments and gill rakers on first arch (Table 3), 2 3, rarely 1 or 4, rudiments and 3 4, rarely 2, gill rakers on upper arch, 1 3, rarely 0 or 4 rudiments and 11 13, rarely 10 or 14, gill rakers on lower arch, total gill rakers and rudiments 18 22, rarely 17 or 23 24, well developed gill rakers 14 17 rarely 12 13 or 18; second arch with 2 rudiment­like rakers on upper arch and 12 13 short rakers grading to rudiments. Vertebrae 10 + 14; 5 free hypurals, 1 pair of slender uroneurals, 3 epurals, a free parhypural; 3 supraneurals, 2 supernumerary spines on first dorsal pterygiophore; basisphenoid present; supramaxilla absent; posttemporal with 3 4 serrations on posterior margin; preopercle ridge smooth, edges serrate on posterior and ventral margins; infraorbital edge smooth or with weak serrations on third infraorbital. Ctenoid scales on opercle, subopercle, cheek, breast, nape, body and pelvic areas; ctenoid pored lateral­line scales from posttemporal to base of hypural; central pore canal on lateral­line scale with 2 3 pores on dorsal side, simple below with 1 pore, rarely with multiple pores. Ten pores around mouth 3 bilateral pores above premaxilla, 1 below anterior nasal area along ventral edge of crease, 2 on ventral edge of lachrymal separated by a septum; 2 bilateral pores on dentary near symphysis, 1 mid­anterior, 1 ventral. Color in alcohol. Dark dorsal stripe from snout over eye ending about middle of second dorsal fin but not past second dorsal­fin base, midline stripe from snout through eye extending to edge of caudal fin, variable post­ocular stripe length, either not reaching past head or reaching to level of soft dorsal fin along lateral­line scales; lower lip with some melanophores; melanophores on 1 3 pelvic rays, appearing as a stripe; anal fin with distal tips in melanophores, stripe near base of fin extending onto last anal ray tips; stripe in second dorsal near base to last ray; fin­base of anal rays, and base of second dorsal fin darker posteriorly; roof of mouth and portion of upper branchial basket pale; peritoneum silvery with tiny melanophores, stomach and intestine blackish. Life colors. Figure 4 shows the color pattern photographed shortly after collection. Kuiter and Kozawa (1999, p. 12) provide underwater photographs of this species.

Distribution

Distribution. See Figure 5. This species has a coastal shelf distribution thoughout the Indo­West Pacific except for the Seychelle Islands and Macclesfield Bank. Fricke (1999) lists this species, as Apogon quadrifasciatus, from Réunion based on old literature. This species probably does not occur in the waters around Réunion. G. Allen provided photographs of specimens from the Solomon Islands which appear to be this species. Habitat: Found over open bottom at depths of 2 128 meters.

Discussion

Remarks. Data presented here suggests that gill raker counts are relatively stable throughout the range of this species (Table 4). Slightly higher counts are noted for the Philippines and southeastern Australia. Gill arch elements variation along the east coast of Australia show some clinal changes with latitude from the higher counts to lower counts, south to north (Table 5). The holotype of Apogon quadrifasciatus and the neotype of Apogon fasciatus are identified in the geographic distribution analysis of counts from the first gill arch (Table 3). Rudiments on the lower arch which otherwise are gill rakers on most material lead to outlier counts for Cuvier’s specimen. None of the material examined suggests a different species is present in India or other regions of the Indian Ocean. The color pattern differences relating to the shorter stripe posterior to the eye was variable on the body in the preserved material examined. Smith (1961, Pl. 48 G) shows the short postocular stripe along the pored lateral­line scales. These results agree with Randall and Hoese’s opinion in 1988 that Apogon quadrifasciatus is a synonym of Apogon fasciatus. This species has been taken with Apogon pleuron and A. bryx. Buccal males were found in USNM304742, 46 47 mm SL and USNM357453, two with eggs in mouth 75 78 mm SL, five buccal without eggs. The largest specimen, 90 mm SL.
