Another Endemic Specie

Yellow crown demoiselle (R)The list of undescribed and/or endemic species found in Gorontalo continues to grow. Miguel’s Diving can now show guests a recently discovered undescribed specie found only in northern Sulawesi and Tomini Bay. The Yellow crown demoiselle (Chrysiptera sp.) is commonly found in Gorontalo’s coral rich reefs. It is also quite easy to photograph. Distinguishing features include the broad yellow crown, yellow pectoral spot, and tiny black ear spot. One photographer this season photographed what we thought was another Yellow crown demoiselle. However, the picture shows an amazingly beautiful blue wash around the yellow crown. According to our international fish expert, this color pattern has never before been documented. Maybe it’s a Gorontalo crown demoiselle!
