Material examined. SMF 35038View Materials (6: 6.8–16.5 cm); SMF 35040View Materials (2: 29.5–30.4 cm); SMF 35041View Materials (2: 8.3 –9.0 cm); SMF 35042View Materials (2: 6.4–7.1 cm); KAUMM 89 (6: 5.9–16.2 cm); KAUMM 90 (1: 21.9 cm); KAUMM 92 (2: 8.2–8.7 cm); KAUMM 93 (3: 5.9–6.7 cm).

Remarks. Johnson et al. (2001) reviewed the genus and recognized 4 subspecies in D. picta  , but Heemstra  & Heemstra  (2004) elevated D. centurio (Cuvier, 1830)  and D. punctata  to species level using size of spots as diagnostic character. Here, we are following Johnson et al. (2001) in treating Red Sea D. picta punctata  as subspecies.
