Giganthias

Giganthias is a small genus of fish belonging to the anthia subfamily (Anthiinae). It contains two species from Japan, Taiwan, and Indonesia.

Taxonomy[edit]

Giganthias was first established by Japanese ichthyologist Masao Katayama in 1954 based on two specimens of the type species Giganthias immaculatus recovered from the island of Izu Ōshima in Japan.[1] Katayama initially placed the species in a separate subfamily, Giganthiinae, but it is now accepted to be under the subfamily Anthiinae of the family Serranidae.[2]

In 2012, a new species of Giganthias was described from Lombok, Indonesia, based on a specimen recovered from a fish market in the village of Tanjung Luar.[3][4]

Description[edit]

Giganthias are characterized by nine spines on the dorsal fin. The third dorsal spine and the pelvic spines have serrated tips. The lateral line is very highly arched and a supplementary maxillary is present.[2]

Species[edit]

Giganthias contains two species:[2][4]
