    A single specimen of the Stanaland’s sole, Solea stanalandi was caught by a commercial trawl from Gujarat coast and landed in Mangrol fish landing centre on 23rd January, 2017. The species is presently considered as one of the data deficient species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) due to the dearth of crucial information on the ecology, distribution and population characteristics of the species. Hitherto, the species was believed to be endemic in Persian Gulf alone. This is the first report of its occurrence from Indian waters, describing the extension of its geographical distribution within the Indian water. The fish was examined for its morphometrics and meristic characters and described. The new report of S. stanalandi in Indian fisheries could provide a novel avenue for generating vital baseline information to understand the ecological significance of the species in the region.
