UFES 139 (2 specimens) Ilhéu Santana, SãoTomé . This species of the genus Apletodon ZBK is common on rocks in shallow water at SãoTomé and at Príncipe . The species is being described by Fricke (2007), based on animals from Príncipe . We have also frequently seen it at SãoTomé Island (Figure 17). The record of Apletodon pellegrini from Annobón Island/Equatorial Guinea, by Briggs (1990) may have been based on this species. The first author has recently (February 2007) collected this species near Limbe, Cameroon.
