Etymology: Symphysanodon: Greek, syn, symphysis = grown together + Greek, physis = growth body form + Greek, odous = teeth; related to few teeth which are located over the area where the two jaws meet (Ref. 45335);  xanthopterygion: The name xanthopterygion is from the Greek xanthos (yellow), pterygion (fin)—referring to the yellow coloration of the lower caudal-fin lobe. The specific name of the new species is a noun in apposition to the generic name Symphysanodon (Ref. 87359).

Marine; pelagic-neritic; depth range 150 - 240 m (Ref. 87359).   Tropical; 10°N - 9°N, 75°E - 76°E

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm
Max length : 14.5 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 87359)
