    Abstract

    Plectropomus pessuliferus is often misidentified as P. maculatus (Heemstra and Randall 1993). Heemstra and Randall (1993) recognized two subspecies: Plectropomus pessuliferus marisrubri in the Red Sea, and P. pessuliferus pessuliferus from the remainder of the Indo-Pacific region. Phylogenetic analyses by Ma et al. (2016) identified P. pessuliferus as a relatively small species with a distribution from the central Indian ocean to the Coral Triangle with a single record from deep water Tonga. It is the sister species of P. leopardus and is not directly related to the Red Sea species previously identified as P. pessuliferus marisrubri.
