They were all taken around May 16, 2008. There was a page with a brief caption (in Japanese) where they seem to refer to it as "figure 1" and give details about where it was found, so I assume it's new. I'm not sure how long it takes or what the process is to name them. Is it possible that they're still working at it after 2 1/2 years?

Anyways, I suppose I should be grateful that it's not something available because I think they're gorgeous and want one. No wonder the poor OP was going crazy trying to figure out what it is!
Thank you!!! I was convinced this is a Paracentropyge genus, but only 3 are known to exist, which is why I was thinking the photo was doctored. Awesome thread here. Great stuff.

Edit: I just clicked on the link, and they are calling it a Centropyge. Yeah. This is me patting myself on the back. LOL
