dc.description.abstract . The razorfish Iniistius griffithsi is described from three male specimens caught by handline off the south coast of Mauritius in 120 m. It is distinct in lacking scales on the cheek except for a curved row of 6 small scales from behind to below the eye; 19–20 gill rakers; body depth of 2.5–2.6 in standard length; first two dorsal spines slender, flexible, and not long (the first 2.45–2.55 in head length); space between first and second dorsal spines more than twice that between second and third spines; and in colour. The most conspicuous colour markings are a broad oblique pale blue band containing many small black spots from high on the nape to above the opercle, and black spots of about pupil size, each edged in pale blue, on the side of the body above the tip of the pectoral fin. en_US
