Abstract

A new species of ponyfish in the genus Photoplagios is described from material collected in the Philippines. Photoplagios laterofenestra, new species, is distinguished from congeners by the presence in males of an expansive translucent flank patch in the shape of a cornucopia. Additionally, both sexes of the new species can be distinguished from congeners by body shape, pigmentation pattern on the upper flank, and length of the second dorsal-fin spine. © 2007 by the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists.
