Abstract: Abstract: Malthopsis jordani Gilbert, 1905 was described from the Hawaiian Islands and subsequently recorded from the western Pacific. A review of the species is provided. Examination of all known specimens of this species revealed that M. jordani is endemic to the Hawaiian Islands and specimens outside the range represent a new species. Malthopsis gigas sp. nov., previously misidentified as M. jordani, is described from 111 specimens widely distributed in the Indo-Pacific Ocean. The new species differs from its congeners in having a relatively strong and long rostrum (x¯8.6% SL); body heavily covered with strong conical bucklers, with numerous small flat bucklers densely covering the space between principal bucklers on the dorsal surface; and the reclined anal fin that extends beyond the caudal fin base. The new species is also the largest member of the
genus, reaching size up to 136.4 mm SL
