    Abstract

    Three specimens of apogonids were collected from Tuticorin Fishing Harbour, off Tuticorin, Gulf of Mannar, southeast coast of India during November 2012 (two specimens) and December 2014 (one specimen). The morphometric and meristic characters of the recorded specimens are described and discussed. Based on the key diagnostic characters like presence of seven anal-fin rays, villiform teeth and block spots on body these specimens were identified as Holapogon maximus (Boulenger, 1888). However, these deep dwelling specimens known previously from Gulf of Oman, Andaman Islands and in the Arabian Sea along the west coast of India but the present record shows the extension of distribution to Gulf of Mannar, southeast coast of India.
