Dactylanthias is a small genus of fish belonging to the Anthiinae subfamily. It includes only two species from Ambon Island, Indonesia and the Tuamotus, French Polynesia.

Dactylanthias was first established by the Dutch ichthyologist Pieter Bleeker in 1871. It is classified under the subfamily Anthiadinae of the family Serranidae.[1]

Dactylanthias was known only from a single specimen of Dactylanthias aplodactylus from Ambon Island, Indonesia,[2] until another species was described in 2007 from the Tuamotus of French Polynesia.[3][4]

The following species are classified under Dactylanthias:[1]
