Carangidae 

Campogramma glaycos (Lacepède, 1801)  —Vadigo

* Caranx crysos  (Mitchill, 1815)—Blue runner

New record from Madeira based on numerous underwater photos by the first author (e.g. figure 4) and two specimens in the collection of the MMF ( MMF 26885View Materials and 34505).

Caranx hippos  (Linné, 176)—Crevalle jack

Recorded from Madeira by Smith-Vaniz in Whitehead et al. (1986: 825). A closely related and very similar species, Caranx fischeri  , has been described from the eastern Atlantic ( Smith-Vaniz and Carpenter 2007; photo in Wirtz et al. 2007). Specimens or photos are needed to decide if both these species occur at Madeira or only one of them.

* Caranx latus  Agassiz, 1831 —Horse-eye jack

Caranx lugubris Poey, 1860  —Black jack

Caranx rhonchus Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, 1817  —False scad

Not recorded from Madeira by Smith-Vaniz in Whitehead et al. (1986: 827) or Smith-Vaniz et al. in Quéro et al. (1990: 734). Fowler (1936: 685) states under Decapterus rhonchus  "In the U.S. National Museum an adult from Madeira, obtained by Captain William Stimpson." This record, however, needs verification.

* Decapterus macarellus  (Cuvier, 1833)—Mackerel scad

* Decapterus punctatus  (Cuvier, 1829)—Round scad

Not mentioned from Madeira by Smith-Vaniz in Whitehead et al. (1986: 828) but recorded from Madeira by Smith-Vaniz et al. in Quéro et al. (1990: 737-738).

Lichia amia (Linnaeus, 1758)  —Leerfish

* Naucrates ductor  (Linnaeus, 1758)—Pilotfish

* Pseudocaranx dentex  (Bloch & Schneider, 1801)—White trevally

Selene dorsalis (Gill, 1863)  —African moonfish

* Seriola dumerili  ( Risso, 1810)—Greater amberjack

Not recorded from Madeira by Smith-Vaniz in Whitehead et al. (1986: 837-838) or Smith-Vaniz et al. in Quéro et al. (1990: 747) but common at Madeira and recorded from there by Wirtz (1994: 84), with a colour photo of animals from Madeira. Seriola dumerili  is very similar to Seriola carpenteri Mather, 1971  ; the only external charcter that can be used to distinguish adults of the two species is the shape of the posterior end of the upper jaw (supramaxilla wider in S. dumerili  ). A photo of the head of an animal from Madeira was sent to Willam Smith-Vaniz who positively identified it as belonging to Seriola dumerili  . Two specimens in the MMF collection ( MMF 35582View Materials and 35583).

* Seriola fasciata  (Bloch, 1793)—Lesser amberjack

* Seriola rivoliana  Valenciennes, 1833 —Almaco jack

* Trachinotus ovatus  (Linnaeus, 1758)—Derbio

* Trachurus picturatus  ( Bowdich, 1825)—Blue jack mackerel

* Trachurus trachurus  (Linnaeus, 1758)—Atlantic horse mackerel
