Abstract

During the course of studies on the fishes of the family Leiognathidae from the Indian Seas, all the 14 species described, by Day (1876) as well as two additional species known to occur elsewhere in the Indo-Pacific but reported for the first time from the Indian region (James, 1968) were collected by the author. Further observations on the group brought to light another species which does not agree with any other known species of the group. Therefore it is described in this paper as new to science and named after Dr. S. Jones, Director, Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute in grateful acknowledgement of his interest in the work. The holotype and the paratypes were deposited in the Reference Collections of the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, Mandapam Camp.
