Figure 2 View Figure ; Table 3

Anthias (Pseudanthias) gibbosus Klunzinger, 1884: 9  (type locality: Al-Qusair , Red Sea Governorate, Egypt, Red Sea). 

A single individual (80.9 mm SL) of this species was collected and photographed during the 2015 survey and preserved ( Figure 2 View Figure ). It agrees well with published photos and descriptions of the species (e.g., dorsal rays X,16; pectoral rays 18; lateral-line scales 41–42; circumpeduncular scales 25; gill rakers 11 + 26; no papillae on posterior rim of orbit; interopercle and subopercle with indistinct serrations; third dorsal spine longest, 19.4 % SL; no auxiliary scales on body; caudal fin lunate, caudal concavity 20.4 % SL; greatest body depth 38.9 % SL). Morphometric details for the specimen are provided in Table 3. We follow Heemstra & Akhilesh (2012) in considering Anthias gibbosus Klunzinger  to be a senior synonym of Franzia fasciatus Kamohara (1955)  .

Material examined: SAIABAbout SAIAB 203720, 80.9 mm SL (same collection data as SAIABAbout SAIAB 203722).
