    Abstract

    The pempherid fishes, or sweepers, of the genus Pempheris are represented in the seas of India by the following five species: P. flavicycla Randall, Bogorodsky & Alpermann 2013; P. malabarica Cuvier in C. & V. 1831; P. mangula Cuvier 1829, for which a neotype is described; P. sarayu, new species; and P. schwenkii Bleeker 1855, a first record for India. Preliminary research has shown that P. schwenkii consists of a complex of species and/or subspecies. Pempheris molucca Cuvier in C. & V. 1831 is treated as a nomen dubium. A key is provided for the five species of the genus for India, and all are illustrated in color.
