Tag: Miller's Damselfish (Pomacentrus milleri)

There are a few, very similar Damselfish in local waters and this is one which is very common, but which is difficult to identify with complete certainty. The most likely candidate is the Miller's Damselfish (Pomacentrus milleri), but another strong possibility is the Thai Damselfish (Pomacentrus polyspinus).

The Colombo Damselfish (Pomacentrus proteus) is another very similar species but appears to be excluded by range.

This is a species i would like to try and find a definitive identification for, so if anyone has any suggestions i'd be very happy to hear them.
