Abstract

For more than 100 years, biologists, ecologists, and biogeographers recognized six species of Apogon in the eastern Pacific Ocean. Re-examining this taxonomy, we find that Apogon guadalupensis is a synonym of A. atricaudus based on morphological and molecular data. A redescription of A. atricaudus is provided, and a new northern occurrence for A. atradorsatus is reported.
