A new deep-sea jawfish
Opistognathus schrieri, holotype, UF 185355, male, 48.0 mm SL, fresh (immediate postmortem), off Curaçao (Z.S. Randall)
Like most jawfish such as its better known blue-spotted (Opistognathus rosenblatti) and yellowheaded jawfish (O. aurifrons), O. schrieri is found living on/in sand beds; the type locality is pea-sized rubble sand bed. Little else is known about the new species at this time.
Opistognathus schrieri is described in the Journal of the Ocean Science Foundation.
