    1. Reviewed by Joseph W. Dougherty    Sep 26, 2003

    Action: changed name from "Amphiprion sebae" to "Amphiprion chrysopterus "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "This is not A. sebae. That species typically has much darker (approaching black) dorsal coloration, always has much broader white belts, and the second belt always extends into the rear portion of the dorsal fin. The pictured animal is most likely Amphiprion chrysopterus, which is recorded from the Society Islands.
