Named Used as Valid Coris musume
Comment Also entered provisionally as a valid species in this reference.
Quote On the basis of the modal difference in the number of lateral line scales and gill rakers, and the slight difference in the color of the adults, musume is provisionally treated as a species. However, DNA analysis might show that the 2 populations might best be regarded as subspecies.
