Miscellaneous Details

"Taxonomic Notes: Terapon jarbua was originally described as Scieana jarbua by Forsskål (1775) from Djedda, Red Sea. Golani and Appelbaum-Golani (2010) have suggested that the specimens from Red Sea and Mediterranean Sea differ slightly from the specimens collected from far east (Hong Kong and Japan) indicating that further molecular taxonomy research is necessary to clarify the identity of this taxon."
