Family:  Congridae (Conger and garden eels), subfamily: Heterocongrinae
Max. size:  69 cm TL (male/unsexed)
Environment:  demersal; marine
Distribution:  Western Central Pacific: Philippines. Because Herre's description of Heteroconger chapmani was not detailed enough to confidently refer the species to any garden eel known today and because the holotype and only specimen was destroyed in Manila during World War II, Castle and Randall (1999) regard this species as unidentifiable (Ref. 33408).
IUCN Red List Status: Data deficient (DD); Date assessed: 26 November 2016 Ref. (124695)
