Info

2020 A new wrasse species was discovered in Japan, Pseudojuloides paradiseus Tea, Gill & Senou 2020, the initial description of the wrasse also includes a revision redescription of the wrasse Pseudojuloides elongatus Ayling & Russell, 1977.

Males are bright yellowish-orange to orange-pink, their upper body is heavily covered in black with 3 - 5 rows of metallic blue spots, while females are unmarked and reddish-orange to brick red.

Etymology:
The specific species name "paradiseus " comes from Latin for "paradise", referring to the strikingly colorful live coloration of the males.

This new wrasse species appears to inhabit scree zones with distinct kelp and macroalgae growth.

Pseudojuloides paradiseus is a member of the Pseudojuloides elongatus complex.

Pseudojuloides paradiseus is sporadically distributed in the following locations in southern Japan:
