Diagnosis. A species of Lipogramma distinguishable from congeners by the following combination of characters: pectoral-fin rays 16 - 17 (modally 16), gill rakers 11 - 13 (modally 12, 8 - 9 rakers on lower limb); four supraorbital pores present along dorsal margin of orbit, a pore present between one above mid orbit and one above posterodorsal corner of orbit; caudal fin rounded; body mostly tan to brown in life with 7 or 8 narrow darker brown bars on trunk; head with broad, irregular, whitish blue markings along dorsal midline from lower lip across upper lip and snout to nape; dark bar through eye bordered anteriorly and posteriorly by bluish-white bars; posterior base of soft dorsal fin with large white- or blue-rimmed black ocellus; dorsal and anal fins blue-grey with yellow spots or bars. Caudal fin mostly yellow with wide blue-grey margin and several bars comprising blue-grey mostly square-shaped spots. Pelvic fins grey / blue with scattered yellow-ringed dark spots. Juveniles with irregular white blotches of pigment on trunk and two triangular white blotches on caudal-fin base. The new species is further differentiated genetically from congeners for which molecular data are available in mitochondrial COI and nuclear Histone 3, Rhodopsin, TMO- 4 C 4, and RAG 1.
Etymology. Named Lipogramma schrieri in honor of Adriaan (Dutch) Schrier, owner of Substation Curacao. Although the Curasub submersible was not built originally for scientific research, Dutch's enthusiastic support of research use of his sub has exponentially expanded our understanding of fish and invertebrate faunas of Caribbean mesophotic and deeper reefs.
