Hi there,

I am trying to obtain information on the species range of the butterflyfish Chaetodon melapterus. According to the literature it is restricted to the Red Sea, Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman. We have recent confirmed sightings from the inner granitic islands of the Seychelles. Does anyone know if it has been recorded in this area before?

Any information would be much apppreciated.
