Acanthurus thompsoni (Fowler 1923), the White-Tailed Surgeonfish, a good name for this species except for its populations in Hawaii which bear no white on their tail areas (at right). Another name for this planktivore is Thompson's Surgeonfish. Though not a striking beauty, this Whitetail tang is a good feeder and stays moderate small (to ten inches). Rarely imported into the trade. Fr. Polynesia 2018
 Ctenochaetus flavicauda Fowler 1938. Central West Pacific; Line and Cook Islands, Parts of Polynesia. To about five inches in length. Peduncle and caudal fin abruptly white. Fr. Polynesia 2018

 Cantherhines dumerilii (Hollard 1854), the Whitespotted Filefish. Indo-Pacific. To fifteen inches maximum. Feeds on a variety of invertebrates including corals. A specimen chomping in the Andaman Sea off of Thailand, and one not eating corals in Hawai'i. Males darker with yellow caudals, females more or less overall grey to olive brown. Fr. Polynesia 2018
Cantherhines sandwichensis (Quoy & Gaimard 1824), the Sandwich Isle Filefish (and reflective sand particulates!). Eastern Central Pacific; Hawaii. To about 8". Fr. Polynesia 2018
