Abstract

Pempheris adusta Bleeker, 1877, commonly called ‘dusky sweeper’ (Fig. 1), generally live on coral reefs and form schools in large caves among rocks. On 19/08/2009, a good number of specimens of P. adusta were observed at Mirkarwada landing centre in Ratnagiri (Fig. 2). They had elliptical, compressed body with iridescent, coppery silver colouration, because of which they were spectacular in appearance.
