Callionymus petersi Fricke, 2016
Type locality: Papua New Guinea, New Ireland Province, 11.5 km west of Kavieng, 2°33.33’S, 150°41.45’E – 2°33.32’S, 150°43.18’E, 180–181 m depth.
Etymology: The species is named in honor of the late Wilhelm Carl Hartwig Peters (b. Apr. 22, 1815, Koldenbüttel, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany; d. Apr. 20, 1883, Berlin), professor at the University of Berlin and director of the ZMB and of Zoological Garden in Berlin. Peters described the fishes collected by S.M.S. Gazelle in New Ireland in July, 1875, and was the first to observe this species (although he misidentified it as Callionymus calauropomus [non Richardson, 1844]).
