Identification

Confidence: moderate/high

The Philippine sightings closely match Eviota rubrisparsa as confirmed by Dr. Dave Greenfield. However, this species has not previously been reported from the Philipines or areas further north. The current observations therefore represent a range extention and ideally genetic confirmation of species identity will be obtained.

Distribution

Western Pacific

Described from Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean. The species has also been reported from the southern parts of Indonesia, east to the Solomon Islands.
