Abstract

A new species of silverbelly Leiognathus striatus (Leiognathidae: Pisces) from the Gulf of Mannar is described and compared with Leiogmthus fasciatm (Lacepde) and Leiogmthus smithursti (Ramsay and Ogilby) with which the new species resembles. A redescription of L. fasciatus (Lacepede) is also given since the original description lacks in many details.
