Abstract

Two species of Chromis, C. notata (Temminck and Schlegel, 1843) and C. kennensis Whitley, 1964, are redescribed, and the description of a new species, C. yamakawai sp. nov., is provided. Two nominal species that were previously regarded as valid, C. flavomaculata Kamohara, 1960 and C. miyakeensis Moyer and Ida, 1976, are synonymized with C. notata. Chromis villadolidi Jordan and Tanaka, 1927 is confirmed as a junior synonym of C. notata. Geographic variation of C. notata is discussed. Two populations previously treated as C. flavomaculata (regarded as a junior synonym of C. notata in this study) include two geographically disjunct species: C. kennensis, previously regarded as a junior synonym of C. flavomaculata, from the southwestern Pacific Ocean, and C. yamakawai from the northwestern Pacific Ocean.
