[[ Apterichtus klazingai (Weber) ]]

Record of Apterichtus klazingai from Hawaii

While examining Hawaiian specimens of Apterichtus ZBK in the collections of the Australian Museum, BPBM, CAS, and the USNM, we discovered 21 specimens of A. klazingai (Weber 1913) that had been collected in 20 m by the junior author along the Kona Coast of Hawaii. They differ from A. flavicaudus in vertebral counts and cephalic pores (Table 2), and in having numerous small brown spots along the posterodorsal surface of the head (Pl. 1c). They represent a new record for the Hawaiian Archipelago.

Material examined of Hawaiian Apterichtus klazingai : BPBM 7906, 21(100-266), Waawaa Pt., Kona Coast, Hawaii .
