For example, in 2006-2007 surveys, juveniles of tropical species such as Chaetodon ocellatus (Chaetodontidae), Fistularia tabacaria (Fistularidae), Ocyurus chrysurus (Lutjanidae), Thalassoma bifasciatum (Labridae), Sparisoma viride (Scaridae), and unidentified acanthurids were collected in coastal habitats where they were not collected during previous surveys (1971-79) (Livingston, 1985).
They were initially thought to be the reef cornetfish, Fistularia commersonii; however, critical examination indicated that these two specimens are the Pacific cornetfish, Fistularia corneta Gilbert and Starks 1904, a new addition to the California fauna.
