Info

Walsh, 2014

Very special thanks for the brilliant photos of the extrem rare wrasse Cirrhilabrus squirei to Lemon Tea Yi Kai from Japan.

Cirrhilahrus squirei, a new species of labrid fish from the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea, Australia is described from four specimens, 36.2-56.3 mm SL. The new species is one of only four Cirrhilabrus known to possess a lunate caudal fin and of these C squirei has the largest caudal concavity. The new species most closely resembles C. john-soni from the Marshall Islands, but males of the new species are larger and possess a shorter snout. Cirrhilabrus squirei also has different fin colouration, with terminal males lacking the bright red dorsal, caudal and anal fins of C. johnsoni and instead possessing yellow fins with distinct black and lavender-black central bands.
