Re-occurrence of the threebanded butterflyfish, Chaetodon humeralis, (Chaetodontidae
) with notes on its distribution in southern California.
Descriptions of three new fishes of the family Chaetodontidae
from the Philippine Islands.
This, to our knowledge, is the first report of cleaning behavior by this species; the nature of its cleaning also appears to be unique within the Chaetodontidae
In declining order of importance, these families were the Scaridae, Acanthuridae, Holocentridae (exclusively of the subfamily Holocentrinae, the squirrelfishes), Monacanthidae, Priacanthidae, Chaetodontidae
, Aulostomidae, and Cirrhitidae (Table 2).
Numerical dominant families found in mangrove surveys included juveniles of Lutjanidae (snapper), Gerreidae (mojarra) and Chaetodontidae
(butterflyfish), and resident habitat specialists such as Tetraodontidae (pufferfish) and Rivulidae (killifish).
The difference between summer and spring in the combined ordination of Figure 2 could be due to the lower numbers of larvae captured in spring 2006; however, there were notable absences of families in that sampling period, e.g., no Chaetodontidae
or Ogcocephalidae and only a single representative of Pomacentridae.
