Review of the Splendid Perches, Callanthias (Percoidei: Callanthiidae) APS Transaction (Vol. 105 #3
William D. Anderson, Jr., G. David Johnson, & Carole C. Baldwin
The family Callanthiidae contains two genera, Callanthias (with seven
species) and Grammatonotus (with six nominal species). Authors William
D. Anderson, Jr., G. David Johnson, and Carole C. Baldwin provide
characters that distinguish callanthiids from other percoids and that
distinguish Callanthias from Grammatonotus, descriptions of Callanthias
and its seven species, a key to the species of Callanthias, and comments
on other aspects of the biology of the species of the genus. The
authorsí initial interest in the splendid perches emanated not from
their spectacular coloration but from specific features of their
morphology and their bearing on possible relationships to other
perciform fishes. Color illustrations.
