Abstract

A new genus and species of pomacentrid fish, Sorbinichromis francescoi, is described based on a single skeleton from the Eocene locality of Bolca in northern Italy. Sorbinichromis gen. nov. is characterized by a unique combination of vertebral (10+15=25) and unpaired fin-ray counts (D XI, 12; A II, 10; C 4, I,8-7,I, 3), long pelvic fins, and the possession of two supraneurals.
