Liopropoma ZBK n. sp.
An undescribed species of the genus Liopropoma ZBK was encountered when diving at steep cliff walls at Pedra da Galé , Príncipe (Figure 9) and at Diogo Vaz, SãoTomé . The solitary animals were encountered between 32 and 45 m depth. Attempts to catch a specimen failed. This is the first record of the genus Liopropoma ZBK in the eastern Atlantic. This genus was known only from the Indo-Pacific and from the western Atlantic.
