Abstract


The yellowtail hamlet, Hypoplectrus chlorurus (Cuvier) (Serranidae), is reported for the first time in the Colombian continental Caribbean. One individual of this species was collected during January 2014 in Bahía Concha (Concha Bay), Parque Nacional Natural Tayrona (Tayrona National Natural Park), at a depth of eight meters.
