Etymology: Odontanthias: Greek, odous = teeth + Greek, anthis = a fish, Sparus aurata (Ref. 45335); randalli: Named after John E. Randall, who has made such a significant contribution to the knowledge of anthiine fishes, and Indo–Pacific fishes in general. The review of the Odontanthias genus he co-authored provided detailed description of the nominal species and their relationships with closely related genera (Ref. 87803).
