Species of Kyphosus are difficult to identify and a recent family revision by Knudsen & Clements (2013) has revealed that in addition to the Bermuda Chub, Kyphosus sectatrix, two other chubs occur in Bermuda, both with unfamiliar names.
In addition to the influence of increasing seawater temperatures, the effect of herbivorous fish, such as the brown chub Kyphosus bigibbus Lacepede and the mottled spinefoot Siganus fuscescens (Houttuyn), is suspected to cause a negative effect; bite marks have been observed on algal thalli, resulting in the loss of biomass.
