Abstract
    An adult specimen of Mycteroperca sp. previously unrecorded was collected from the Azores Islands. Based on comparison of morphological characters and the cytochrome b mitochondrial gene, the specimen was identified as the western Atlantic species M. phenax, a species previously unrecorded from the central or eastern Atlantic Ocean.
