    Abstract

    Five additional species are added to the 31 species in 14 genera known to inhabit reefs in the vicinity of Carry Bow Cay, Belize. Four of these species are known from other localities while one is new; Ascorhynchus peti/us. new species. The new species is described, illustrated, and its morphology compared with related species in this genus. Additional illustrations are provided for another species, Parapallene bermudensis Lebour, from an adult specimen where the species was known previously only from juveniles.
