This current taxon is associated with an old taxon from Bloch: "Perca maculata". I found proceedings in the National Museum that links it to this taxon. The problem is that "Perca maculata" was also created by Forster in 1844, and it links to another species entirely.
Cyndy Parr set "Epinephelus adscensionis (Osbeck). Rock Hind; Cabra Mora. 1902. Epinephelus." as an exemplar on "Epinephelus adscensionis".
