Parapercis colemani Randall & Francis, 1993
Taxonomy & Nomenclature
Last record: 1993 or before
Rediscovered in 2003
Most probably only relocated, but information regarding the collection date of the holotype and any possible threats which could possibly have driven the species extinct are unknown. Thus I have resolved to place the species in the rediscovered fish database until a fuller assessment can be made at a future date.
Paciﬁc Ocean (including Norfolk Island) & Tasman Sea
