First record of Abudefduf cfr saxatilis Linnaeus, 1758 (Perciformes : Pomacentridae) from the Maltese Islands (Central Mediterranean)


The first sighting of Abudefduf individuals from Maltese (Central Mediterranean) coastal waters is reported. The individuals (6-7) were photographed in the field but were not collected. The pattern of body colouration of these individuals is consistent with that reported by most previous authors for A. saxatilis, marking the first record of this Atlantic species from Maltese waters.peer-reviewe
