  • T. Morato (a1), P. Afonso (a1) and J.L. Carlin (a2)


An adult specimen of Mycteroperca sp. previously unrecorded was collected from the Azores Islands. Based on comparison of morphological characters and the cytochrome b mitochondrial gene, the specimen was identified as the western Atlantic species M. phenax, a species previously unrecorded from the central or eastern Atlantic Ocean.
