Material examined. SMF 35010View Materials (5: 6.3–7.7 cm); SMF 35013View Materials (2: 8.0– 8.2 cm); KAUMM 61 (4: 6.1 –7.0 cm); KAUMM 62 (2: 6.5–8.1 cm); KAUMM 64 (1: 7.3 cm).

Remarks. Gon & Randall (2003) reviewed the cardinalfishes of the Red Sea and examined 14 specimens of Jaydia smithi  , however, they did not show the color pattern of the species when freshly collected. Here we present a photo of a fresh specimen that agrees well with the description of specimens given in Gon & Randall (2003) for comparison with the two other Red Sea species of the genus, J. novaeguineae  and J. queketti  .
